Help with oily distributor

hi PZ. had my h22a swap goin for awhile n noticed oil in h23 distributor the other day. i searched in forum but didnt find a thread that showed how to rebuild odb1 usdm dizzy. i already replaced the oring that sealed the head to the dizzy. i still hav oil coming out inside the dizzy. is there any way i can use the jdm dizzy w/internal coil or make it work with external coil?
i found a website the posted that u can install a fuse to the yellow n yellow/black wires from external coil harness n hookup plug wires to jdm dizzy normal n done. sounds too easy to b true IMO.. here is the website:
How to Use a JDM Distributor
any ideas will b helpfull thanx

As far as I know, no one sells the internal shaft seal. You can either rewire to use your internal coil distributor, or get another external coil one

OK. i fugured out how to rewire jdm dizzy to work with a usdm p13 ecu that was prewired from an h23 prelude. really its just removing the internal coil and running a wire that is missing from the jdm dizzy. the upper dizzy is the jdm and the lower is from my h23 dizzy.

what i did was remove the green wire from the h23 dizzy which i just yanked out from the connector and added it to the jdm dizzy. the jdm dizzy had a blank spot in the connector. just use a bobby pin and push out the rubber blankoff.

now just cut a knotch out of the boot that holds the wires comin in the housing and run the green wire through. i also put some 5min epoxy to seal it better.(dont hav a pic of the epoxy)

just use the cap n rotor from other dizzy(usdm dizzy). N ur done

srry 4 some blurry pix. my fone cam sux. i tested it n works. i also noticed a little more power. probably has less resistance from the oil that was in the old one. now i kno im using my ngk iridium plugs.
took me about 20m to complete this project.
