Leaking main gasket

Well I have a leak from the main gasket but it doesn't leak unless I'm really getting on it is there a reason for that?

ahh, rear main seal.well im not an expert at this one. but it does make sense. the oil pump is driven by your distributor. so the faster it spins the more it pumps. also your crank would be moving alot faster to.

Well would it be easier to jack the motor out or drop the Trans to replace it?

it would be easier to just drop the trans. if you have a manual it would be a good idea to change the clutch, pilot and tob bearing, of course unless its new. when you take the old seal out you can keep it to use when tapping the new one in so you dont damage the new one.

Because when you are "really getting on it" it throws all of the oil to the rear of the engine.
