Go to a parts store, such as Napa and buy a bottle of oil system leak detector dye and borrow a black light. Pour the dye into the engine oil. Then, clean the engine with a good degreaser, protecting the distributor from the cleaner and from the water you use to rinse the engine off. Then, run the engine for about 10 minutes and use the black light to look for the dye. It will show up as a bright fluorescent color.
