1987 k-75 oil leak from oil pump

I have an oil leak from a journal at the front/bottom of the oil pan. It looks like this journal comes from the oil pump/water pump unit.
Any suggestions as to how to fix this?

Attached is a photo of the leak.

It's the axle seal on the oil pump that is leaking, time to overhaul the pump.
A lot of info about this is found on the net...

Take a look on these two links from Ibmwr:

Link 2.

Was afraid of that

Thanks for the information and the quick response. We're expecting a winter storm this weekend, good time to tear it down.
