Default Oil leak near distributor

I've replaced the inner dissy o-ring and the out dissy O-ring and I still seem to have a leak under my car near passenger side even though those two seals are not leaking oil anymore.

I notice a few sensors screwed into the engine below the dissy, what are these and is it possible they are leaking?

the sensors under the distributor are tapped into the coolant, and they would be leaking coolant. Maybe your valve cover or rear main seal?

Thanks for the info.

I'm preying its not rear main but it's been a hot day here and I went out and got then engine really hot and I think it might be coming out of the new O-ring on the outer portion of the dissy.

I stuff a rag under there and I believe I see fresh oil. Maybe the website I ordered the 2 seals from set me the wrong one?

I the part # is 30110-PA1-732 which is a honda distributor o-ring.

it's possible that the oroing got cut while installing the distributor. Get a new outer oring from HONDA. oil it lightly before installing it onto the dist. and then lightly coat the outside before installing the dist in the head.

If I get a new o-ring and still have same issue do you see anything wrong with putting a ring of honda-bond type sealant around the nub at the bottom of distributor that goes into the head?

you shouldn't have to do that, but I guess that or some silicone gasket maker would be fine. Just make sure that you soak up the oil in the end of the head that would touch the silicone while it cures. it would help to jack up the right side of the car so that the oil in the head will pool towards the other end. just make sure the bore is dry while you let the silicone cure (at least 4-6 hrs or so). I'd let it sit over night.
