I'm getting a little oil in the distributor.
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.

I have seen where the distributor shaft and the lower bushing where varnished up and not letting oil by thus forcing it throught the top bushing. Also you might check your crankcase breathers make sure they are not plugged. I have seen when there is excessive crankcase pressure, oil will start showing up in the distributor. We use the KN type, and wash and reoil it after each race.
