oil leak on bottom bolt of distributor...???

Well first of all i replaced my O ring for my distributor and the oil seems to stop. but after the next few day, oil started leaking again? Is it because of my O ring again? And i was just wondering why my distributor don't have the seal on the tip of it entering to the camshaft? Because most of the other distributor i see, it has the seal on it. So can anyone of you help me.???

no there is no other seal on the tip. just the one o-ring.try and put some gasket sealant around where the dizzy hits the head. make sure u dont get any in the oil

okay thanks. figure out that it was the one inside the distributor. The seal inside pop out, so i kind of just pop it back in. lol. no sign of leak after that. hopefully it last.

If it's leaking from below the dizzy than it's 99% the dizzy o-ring which is extremely easy and cheap to change.
