Thumbs down Waterfall oil leak on my 91 accord. help!

My oil gauge popped on last night when i was driving home and i pulled over after puting the car in neutral and shuting off the engine to a rolling stop, and noticed a trail of oil on the road leading to the whole undercarage of my car drenched in oil. After puting a couple quarts of oil in the car, I pulled the driver's side wheel off and the plastic splash gaurd from under the car and restarted the car briefely and looked into the wheel well to notice two heavy streams of oil coming from who knows where. i couldnt see exactly where it was coming from but its NOT the valve cover, oil drain plug or oil filter. My best clue is that the timing belt cover was leaking oil and was drenched in the stuff. the top half of the engine is dry but the timing belt area is soaked. i think this would be the cam/crank shaft seals leaking and needs new ones. I am wonder if this repair is really hard to do? my dad's been a heavy machinery machanic for 25 years and i know some about cars as well. we have plenty of tools and an owners manual to guide us threw, but no first hand experiance. Is there any tricks or tips for this replacement? I hoper im right about where its coming from, since i cant directly see where even after being all underneath it. What should i remove to remove the timing belt cover? valve cover, alternator, ect? Thanks- Eazy

Sounds like the front crankshaft seal let go. The camshaft seal would not leak so badly.
