i havent actualy looked for it yet but i was looking for some good educated guesses from everyone. it looks like it is leaking from the back of the block somewhere. are there any freeze plugs or bolts that could be loose back there ? i finaly took it out for a ride and when the temp started to go up i pulled back into the garage and noticed the puddle starting. (the ride was great though, chirped tires in 2nd without trying )

There are four freeze plugs at the back of the block - one on each side (above the oil filter casting on the left, and one opposite that point on the right), and two in the rear face of the block, one on each side of the cam plug.
