replace the front bearing (if that is where its leaking from) between the flywheel and engines, is where the leak would show up from

Yep definately the front bearing is shot and you need to replace it. I'd also recommend that you dont run the engine until you get that bearing replaced because the engine will run lean and you risk damage to the engine.

ps. What is it with you and the caps button?? LOL
