Do you still have the factory bottle for crank case attached? It can cause oil to get everywhere once it reaches the fan. Just a thought.

Very popular for the gasket between the Vac pump and timing cover to leak. Mine did, and it looked like a front crank seal leak by the way the fan was throwing it around. I ended up pulling my fan off and running the engine to pinpoint the leak.
