Re: Distributer

Is it coming out of the shaft inside the dist. or is is leaking where the shaft mates with the block?

Re: Distributer

There is (or should be anyways) a gasket there. Get some gasket paper or RTV and make a gasket for it.

Re: Distributer

The RTV will most likely break when/if the distributor is disturbed, like when setting timing.
A gasket for the distributor runs like $2 at Autozone.
I had a hell of a time getting it because noone though it existed, but I do have the part number: 70051
Otherwise, just use some thin carboard or something and cut to size/shape.
