Default Distributor leaking oil/blow by problem

I have a 91 Accord with about 255k on it, runs like a champ...

The distributor is leaking oil. The engine has a significant amount of blow-by, because of this oil in the head is being forced into the distributor, which then leaks it out onto the tranny. The inside of dizzy is covered in oil, everything in it has oil on it. The car still starts and runs awesome.

It can leak about 2 quarts in 50 miles.

Has anyone else seen this before?
Suggestions on how to block oil in the head from going into the dizzy?

It's time to rebuild or pick up a jdm import and for the distributor it time to replace it to the bearing is worn out.

before you go that expensive rout try replacing that little o ring on the rotor assembly itself that might be your problem right there

Just to clarify, the oil is getting inside the dizzy, not leaking out between the head and dizzy.
Correct me if I'm wrong; there isn't an o-ring on the outside of the dizzy, that has anything to do with oil getting into the dizzy.

There will be no engine rebuild or swap, haha, the car is basically worthless.
