Leaking coolant from timing cover

2002 sport trac 4.0

truck has pretty bad coolant leak, origionally thought it was from water pump, replaced water pump and still leaked, upon further inspection (now that the area is actually clean) i think the leak is actually coming from behind the timing cover, are there seals back there or is it just the timing cover gasket that needs to be replaced?

also how bad is this job? i've heard that it requires pulling the engine, that can't be true right?
