1999 F350 7.3 major oil leak

Hi, I could use a little help I discovered a major oil leak I do not understand what or where the item is coming from. The leak is coming from an area above the oil filter where a steal looking item look like it goes in to aluminum item. I am learning more and more as time goes on with this truck. The truck is a 1999 F-350 quad cab dully with the 7.3L engine 4x4. The truck is all stock with 44k+ miles. I am the second owner. The oil is leaking in a stream coming down.

Thank you

Patirck aka Freejack.
