Default Dripping oil

1989 Civic DX 1.5L. I just got a valve job & put in new pistons/bearings. I've still got it up on jackstands, turned it over, and it runs great, but leaks like crazy from the bottom of the lower timer belt cover. Before I did the work, it didn't leak at all. I don't think it's a leaky oil pan seal because those usually "weep" rather than drip constantly. I didn't touch the front crankshaft seal. What's the best way to determine what's leaking? Do I need to take off the drive pulley, take off the cover, put the pulley back on & start it up for a visual check? Also, is it possible that the PCV valve has anything to do with it?
