Default oil Pan ID (and oil leak help)

Sonny Leonard 565's - oil is puddling behind the motor after running, and I'm also having a leak at the front left!

Figured it might be the rear main seal so pulled motor and replaced (old one didn't look like it was leaking but replaced anyways). While out noticed that the pan was RESTING on the stringer On the back right. Notched an inch or so out of the stringer and reinstalled everything, but still have the same issues.

I'm now convinced the pan is tweaked. Doesn't seem to be the VC's or the intake or distributor. I know those pans are cast aluminum but after years of resting on the stringer what do you guys think? Could it be out of whack? Didn't appear to leak on the Dyno.

All that said anyone recognize these pans? Assume they are KE pans? Any further ID so I can find one on line and test my theory?
