    5.0lt oil leak at distributor

    Hi to all, just joined up so new member here and love to be involved.

    Ok so i finished putting my vq sv5000 back together due to having to move(easier to drive it) went to fire up and no spark, failed hall effect sensor. Changed the dizzy over with an rae and fires up first crack, timed it and all good. I now have a bad oil leak at the base where it meets the block making a mess. Should there be an o-ring in place of the gasket? The original bosch had no gasket nor o-ring and didnt leak. Any one had this or similar to this problem? Drivin me mad!
