Rear main seal leak BBC ?

I may have a rear main seal leak on my fresh rebuilt BBC. Damn, only 450 miles on it. Everything is dry up on top, everything. Had the car on a lift running and nothing, no leak, drive around and she starts to drip at the flywheel inspection cover. Anyone try a quick fix like Bars Leak LOL. :D

Thanks guys for the info, yes you will need to raise the engine up. I have a 1 piece oil pan gasket and I'm just hoping that is my problem. Hard to tell 100%, but the crank looks dry where the seal is. I was able to tighten the last 4 bolts on the pan (2 on each side) a little more to snug up the gasket. Lets see what happens now.
What happen now? Timing cover seal will start leaking.:D
Noooooo.... :clonk:
