I have heard that the distributor o-ring is prone to leaking.

Re: I am new and I got a ?

I had the samr problem. YOu are going to want to check the distributor housing oring, and the oring that is on the shaft of the disributor itself aswell. It wouldn't be a bad idea to check the fuel pump. I had a hard time to get it to seal to the head with a gasket so I tossed the gasket and sealed it with some RTV. Probably wouldn't be a bad time to change the valve cover gasket while your doing all this.

Hey Yellowzuk, I was new too last month on this forum and had the same problem and they told me it was the distributor o ring! Guess what they where right! Also the front crankshaft seal was cracked. Both were easy to fix, a whole lot easier than pulling the tranny. check it out and good luck..

I have checked that it doesn't seem to be it. the leak seems to be coming from the bell housing. could the oil from the o ring get in the bell housing. I hope I don't have to drop the tranny again.
Thax for your info

Re: I am new and I got a ?

While you are in the mood for fixing leaks, change the pcv valve while you are at it . The crankcase pressure can build up and push oil past the seals . It's located above the #3 port in the intake, just behind the carb . That o ring on the distributor housing can lose a lot of oil , too .

welcome aboard, check your crank case, and PVC, like mentioned, too much pressure will blow by the seal, how many miles? did it have a head gasket replace, mine did, and whoever had it, did a crapp of a job,

Re: I am new and I got a ?

I also had a hard time getting my fuel pump to seal back up. I ended up using orange rtv and the gasket. A good way to check the fuel pump is to take some hose attach it to the vent that is pointing down. Attach the other end of the hose to a plastic bottle drive around awhile and see if theres any oil in it. Also Sarge is right that O-Ring will drop a ton of oil and it will drip down on top of the bell housing.

I had bad oil leak on my bell housing also. It was the o ring at the dist & the oil pan gasket. I replaced both and no more leaks.
