Default Engine Oil Leak

I have been trying for sometime to locate and cure an oil leak on our 2003 GT 5 speed. I have replaced the oil filter adapter gasket, crankcase drain plug and valve cover gasket. I thought for a time that it might be a axle seal as there did not appear to be leakage at idle-only when driven. It does not appear to be coming from the axle. The oil appears to be coming from the right side and not down low. It is dificult to tell as it might be being thrown from the crank or??? Anybody have any ideas? My plan for now, I guess, is to pull the timing cover and see if it is the crankshaft seal. I did loosen the upper cover and it does not appear to be coming from the cams. I really want to fix this so I can enjoy driving the car. Need Help!

I bought the car in pieces last spring. I had the head shaved and put it back together with new timing belts etc. That being said, I have no idea when it was last replaced. Guess I should go get a new one?
