1982 cb750 Nighthawk SC Pin hole in bottom portion of crankcase

Csecrist12
I'm new to this forum so forgive myself as I have not searched in its entirety for this question. I just put together a roller 82 cb750 nighthawk I got from the good ole craigslist and got it running last night after sitting for 6 months(at my place, not including the guy I got it from). After I got it running, I was waiting for the oil to start seeping through new gaskets or spots of fastners I may have missed. I found a spot under the right side cover(Right under the alternator) but on the crankcase lower half has a pin hole that is leaking oil. I've never seen this before. Any ideas what it could be?

Can you post a picture? I have seen where the stators in the DOHC bikes have went bad and started arcing like a welder, and burnt up the case where the stator is mounted.
