Post Oil leak

Hey I go tanother one for ya I was just stting here thinking about it all and reading old posts.. I have a oil leak at the Distibutor looks to be a slow leak as I have cleaned it off and after say 1000 miles it hadnt lost that much that I could tell by checking the dip stick but there was fresh oil around the area I had cleaned up.. Any idea what this is and how to fix it..

Cool

Is it from your dipstick tube ? where meets the block ?

if so - its cracked and will get worse slowly... mine is now a gusher... so no parking on white driveways !

If you have the V8 in there, ie. 304,360,401:
there is a small round gasket where your distributer seats against the engine block. So if your leaking around there, could be just a quick gasket replacement.
