I've got a good oil leak out of one or possibly all three of the following:

Distributor (O ring)
Valve cover gasket
Cam tower (at distributor end)

I'm trying to find the correct size O ring to put on the distributor to seal that up. Having a heck of a time. Picked up a few possibilities at napa. Most likely candidate seems to be about 25mm inside diameter. Seems to fit tight but unfortunately I can't tell until it is installed and run for a while. Anybody have an exact size, or part number or anything to take out some of the guess work for me?


Valve cover gasket has plagued me for years. Seems to leak out of the corners at the bottom near the last cam tower. My thoughts are to install the cam tower with a real light smear of RTV under it, and then dab those corners where the valve cover gasket comes down and see if that does the trick. Anybody have any thoughts? Should I do a really thin smear of RTV along the whole mating surface for the valve cover gasket? I don't want to get carried away with the stuff but want this to be the last time I do it.


Can someone please also tell me the torque specs on those cam tower bolts?
