Default 1977 oil leak from front drive chain sprocket

Hey guys

My shovel is dripping oil from the drive chain front sprocket wheel at stand still ....... when not driving for some days it leaks from the chain sprocket wheel makes a small pond of fresh oil in the pan i have placed on the floor

Is that a faulty pack box/seal ring at the sprocket wheel axle that leaks ? Or is there another explanation for the mess ?

Happy riding

Output shaft seal on the transmission, pretty common.
