Default 91 351 leaking oil by waterpump

I have a 1991 351 that oil is puddling up o the top by the intake but it also seems like its coming from behind the waterpump....I am having a problem figuring out exactly what is leaking to be able to get it fixed.... I am having the same problem with my 1994 ford f-150 with a 302.... Any help would be appreciated...
Thanks,
John
