Engine in and running but small problem

So the 406 is back in the jeep. Life got in the way for about a month, but last Tuesday night we got the jeep fired up. The Holley Avenger EFI system really smoothed out the lumpy cam in that engine. Hopefully that means more vacuum at idle (better brakes). The only issue is the oil drip from the back of the block while running. We figured out it was NOT the rear main seal, but it looks like it is coming from the back of the oil pan under the seal. I’ll have to pull the oil pan, after pulling starter and exhaust and see what I can do to fix the issue. I do have another oil pan to put on, but not sure about depth of oil pickup tube to make sure that doesn’t cause a new problem.
