Here in Pa we have to make sure if the pan has a hole rusted through it or not. You will see bubbling of the paint on the pan if this is happening. Otherwise just try and get it as clean as you can and with the oil properly filled, start it up and watch for the leak. The 7.3 uses pressurized engine oil to drive the injectors. Leaks can occur in a number of places for the high pressure system and for the turbo cooler lines. See if the oil is visible in the center of the engine.

I didn't notice any oil in the center of the engine. Thank you for your help, I will try that.

Check the oil pressure switch or sending unit.

Look near the oil filter base. Only leak while it's running?
