    the only seal on the distributor side that you can change is the O-ring on the distributor housing right where it goes into the head.

    would that o ring be the most likely problem, i have noticeable oil on the top of my tranny and the left side of my block, but not significant enought to add oil alot, idk where else it could be coming from, its not antifreeze for sure

    Well the o ring is the easiest to change, so start with that. It could also be the valve cover gasket, the sealant between the No. 5 Camshaft holder may be leaking, or it could even be the head gasket.
