Oil leak around Distributor

I cleaned out the engine compartment about 2 weeks ago to try and locate the oil leak(s). One definite one I found was around the base of the distributor. Was wondering how I would go about fixing it. Any help or input would be appreciated.

Re: Oil leak around Distributor

You can get distributor gaskets at the parts stores. You have to pull the distributor out and put on the new one. If you have never had a distributor out before you may want to read up on it first. It's pretty easy as long as you do it right and put it back exactly the way it came out

I cut up an old leather glove and made some for mine, worked great.
