OK the Honda done some work and did tune up new spark plugs (ngk), cables oil filter but I changed the distributor cap and found heavy amount of oil inside wiped it but still oily. Is this bad, should I change the whole thing even if it works?

The shaft seal has gone hard and cracked, if you leave it you will suffer a distributor failure. Get it fixed or replaced.
