Default B16a Turbo Build Oil Leak PLEASE HELP!

Hi my name is matt im 17 and own a 2000 civic hx a i just dropped my fulmy built b16a into my coupe and noticed it had a pretty bad oil leak coming from the driver side. My first thoughs were the oil pan gasket or the oil pump seal so i went and replaced both even tho they were both brand new from honda (replaced when i built the engine) so i got them both replaced and still have the same leak so then i moves up to the valve cover gasket which i shpuld have done first because it it the higher point of the motor but i got the valve cover all sealed up and still the same exact leak i just noticed today that 2 of my waterpump bolts were loose and the bolt heads were wet ( not sure if oil or coolant) but the housing itself was not wet or anything so i dont think that could be the problem im starting to run out of options here the oil is flying all over my alternator and the driver side axle if anybody could just gice me some ideas on what this could be i would greatly appriciate it since this has been holding me up from getting her ok the rode for the past month

Yup. Crank seal is backwards. Probably going to be a pita to remove without taking out the pump.

Another thing, don't remove a timing belt if everything isn't at TDC. Goes for any engine you do.
