Head change

Hey all. I got a 2001 SH. A mechanic friend of mine is changing out the head and new head gasket of course. I purchased a new head gasket kit (Stone) and a new head. The head was taken to a machine shop that specializes in head and cylinder work. I have new cam seals, cam hole plug, vtec gasket, front water outlet gasket, thermostat with gasket that will be changed as well. I know I need the distributor O-ring and Thermostat housing O-ring but what else will I need to have replaced while this work is being done? There is a top end oil leak from the passenger's side. The distributor O-ring I know is one of the culprits. There was a thread that covered common oil leak locations on the 5th gen but I can't find the sh*t now. Any suggestions besides the two O-rings that were mentioned. That is to eliminate all possibilities for the oil leak.
