Angry 1977 GL1000 oil leak

Hi everyone,

So I attempted to fire up my Wing after a rebuild. Of course, it didn't fire!! But I had a terrible amount of oil coming off the left side shaft.
Could someone please tell me what might be the problem?
Thanks

I think it was valve cover gasket. It wasn't sealed right. No oil leak so far.

Thanks
