Another thought, Tim.

As I recall, you've recently gone through 3 new warranty replacement
distributors, none of which have solved, for long, the oil leakage problem
into the body of the distributor.  We now know that apparently these
distributors do not have a positive shaft seal absolutely preventing oil
blowby, so why are you having a blowby pressure that others apparently are
not experiencing?

Have you looked outside of the distributor itself for the root source of the
problem?  Could it be that the crankcase breather system has a blockage
problem?  In the past there have been threads on both the 20V lists about
such problems and associated parts replacements.  The rubber hose to the
block, the flame trap, and other parts at the throttle body end of this
breather system, one that as yet I have not had to fool with.

Dig into it, and keep us posted.
