I was having an oil leak from the distributor seal. I bought a new distributor and replaced. I drove car approx. 12 miles and then checked for leaks. No leaks found. Two days later I looked under the hood and found oil. I checked the valve cover and it was dry. Seems to bwe coming from my new distributor. Any suggestions?

Do you

The o ring could have ripped when you installed it.
