If the clutch drum was not set on the oil gear spring properly the housing can wear out and leak oil. I recommend removing the clutch and inspect the housing.
See a local dealer like for parts.

Good luck

    Thank you for your reply. The oil is coming out to well next to the muffler, A friend told me it was the plastic drive gear! I finally figured it out by looking at another body and noticed the plug is messing and called the dealer and they said I need to put a screw part they have into the hole.

Stihl 029 super oiler is not working

Pull off the clip and sprocket, then check the spring or wire behind the clutch. There is a notch in the sprocket hub that drives the spring when the hub is spinning. Sometimes the spring comes off the worm gear that it drives. If the spring is not there you need to remove the clutch to check it. It has left handed threads on it)
