Oil In Distributor....
Hi Fellow Jeep & XJ Lovers, I have a new problem, which I need your help with. I recently pulled my distributor cap and to my surprise there was alot of oil inside the distributor and on the cap. I am wondering if anyone knows were I can purchase the seal thats internally in the distributor or am I better off replacing the distributor??? Thanks To All...
Hi mgramann, Thanks for the reply. Yes I did have a lot of blowby, the ccv tubing was clogged. I have recently cleaned the vavle cover and all the vacuum lines. So what am looking to do is replace the seal inside the distributor. Do you know where I can get this seal? I priced a distributor $49.00 plus a $20.00 core charge. The XJ budget is kinda tight.
Since you cleared the clog in the tube, you might not need to mess with the distributor. I'd do a wait and see approach.

The oil should stop being pushed inside the dist. since you have cleared the lines. I agree with the above posts and would clean out all you can and check it in a week or so.
