I'm getting a little oil in the distributer.

350 small block

Is there a seal somewhere? If so, how difficult is it to replace? and can I get it at an autoparts store?

Thanks again for you help.

The shaft or bushings are probably wore. There is not a seal.

Or the dist casting has porosity in the grove that hi pressure oil goes past. You can use a porosity sealant like LOCTITE.
