Oil leak LHS V8 Deisel Cruiser ute

Got me buggered !
Oil all way back to rear gearbox brace and initially looked real bad. initially
Removed small protection plate from under turbo.
Cleaned up everything with "degreaser" and Gerni.

Now no drips.
WTF ?
Can't find split hose anywhere ! (yet), but 2 x 3/8 hoses working way back up front of motor, have oil tracks on them.
What are these. ?

Could it be a pressurizing issue, when boost is at max, but that didn't show when i gave it a flogging for approx 40 km to force it to leak.
Didn't.

Checking oil sender unit, it seems fine.
Crankcase Ventilation Valve ?

Any hints please greatly accepted

Cheers

Oil leaks can be hard to find some times . I had one on a car that took me an entire hour of stopping and checking stopping and checking on the highway after I cleaned it up so well I could eat off it .
