1990 Honda Accord distributor oil leak

My 1990 Honda Accord 2 dr. has about 270 K miles and has developed an oil leak at the distributor. From what I've seen it looks like an O ring and a gasket are what is needed. Any special tools required to work on this puppy? Anything you'd reccommend watching out for?

Nothing to it. Just be sure to mark the wires for their proper location and use a scratch awl or something to mark the distibutors location in the head. Put everything back where it was when you started and you should be ahead of the game.
Good Luck,
Hope this helps,

That should be it. For a while, Honda was replacing distributors due to bad electrical parts inside. I remember calling the dealer for a cap and rotor and they said, "nah, we'll give you a whole distributor at no charge".

We just supplied the VIN # and they gave us a new distributor. That was in the early to mid 90's on some Civics and possibly Accords at the time.
