Default RE: oil leak

What's the 'bottom'? If it's leaking INSIDE the body of the distributor, then you can't replace that seal. Need a new distributor body.

If it's leaking down the side of the head, from the OUTSIDE of the base of the distributor, it's easier. There's an O-ring on that end of the distributor.
