SOURCE: oil cooler seal
There are two items that can be leaking oil there. There is a gasket between the oiler cooler flange (the item attached to the engine), and the rubber gasket/seal that goes between the cooler and the flange. (the latter is the one that leaks most often as most oil change shops over tighten the oil filter).
I just replaced the gasket between the cooler and flange recently. I chose to do it quick and dirty: 1. remove oil filter 2. remove oil filter nipple (the portion you screw the filter onto) 2a. you'll need a deep well socket to get the bolt that holds the cooler tight (I believe 27mm)
2b. pull down the cooler, Grab the nipple with a pair of pliers between the flange and cooler and loosen/remove
3. remove old gasket/seal and clean surface 4. put new seal/gasket in place 5. re-seat the nipple back in. use the pliers method, just make sure you don't scar the threads where you NEED them( you don't need all of them). 6. put some gasket sealer (oil friendly) on the gasket and make sure its in place 7. tighten oil cooler onto flange with large nut and socket 8. replace oil filter and add oil as needed.
it is a tight working area, expect some scrapped knuckles, but it isn't too difficult.

I hate to rub salt in your wounds but after all your effort the time spent you could have the engine back in by now.
All the tin ware needs to be lifted well clear as you know the oil cooler is upright in the path of the Rotor/fan, this also needs to be raised well clear as the cooler needs to be taken off completely, you will want to clean surfaces and internals won't you?
So all shrouds to bodywork off,(Engine bay) throttle cable disconnected, clutch cable disconnected your generator wires off and finally fuel pipe. 4 bolts on gearbox bell housing and slide engine out or down for clearance on trolley jack.
All the above relates to a TypeII Split or bay window with stock engine, Not suitcase or injection.

Take off the oil Filter, Drain the coolant & undo the two coolant lines. The cooler is held to the block by a 30mm nut from below. Remove nut & lower Cooler. Assemble with a new gasket.

It could be just a worn out seal or a worn out/deformed cooler. In the end the only way to know what needs to be replaced is to dismantle it and check the status of the cooler. If the cooler is OK then just put a new gasket.
