    I ordered a the o-ring it has exactly the same measures of the old, but the description does not appear the number of my engine, I hope this solves the problem.

    Do you have a link to what part you ordered ?

    This may help someone else in future if we can record it in this thread.

    The O-ring had the exact measure and it resolved the problem, but another came out the engine light came on, maybe it´s the oil pressure sensor, let´s see what will be.

    Thanks but it´s not it. The it 5 is the ruber o-ring and I have got it, the o-ring goes around that metal piece that is broken.

    I assemble the distributor again and for now it´s not losing oil, but I must search for a solution. I don´t understand any thing about distributors but I´m going to see in the net what I can find.

    How did it break in the first place ? they normally don't break or suffer metal fatigue as such.

    I don´t now. This weekend I saw some oil in the pavement and after a search I see that it came (again) from the distributor, after the disassemble it was what I saw.
