    Distributor housing seal

    Hello all, almost done sealing up the few random oil leaks on my 83 accord. It looks as if there is an oil leak between the head and the distributor housing. Is there a gasket that goes in there? I have not had any luck finding one. Can that housing be removed, cleaned and reinstalled with some RTV?

    On a different topic, I am getting ready to do a R152a conversion on the A/C system

    So quick update. You remove the dizzy, thermostat, any thermo sensor vacuum hoses and what not. The housing comes off, it has a water passage gasket behind the thermostat and an O-ring in the housing for the end of the cam. My O-ring was harder than granite and super brittle. Soo replaced them, autozone still caries the water gasket, I went to a hardware store for the oring. Replacing the radiator at the same time and started flushing the A/C system. Should have everything back together soon and ill report back vent temps with R152a.

    R152. That's the canned air from Wal-Mart, right? It should work out pretty well. Keep us posted.
