Some help needed here..
Recently rebuild 74 2L motor has developed leaks from the distributor base and the oil dipstick tube. I removed the dipstick and found new hose with the same id , retighten , but still leaks. I don't know if there is a seal at the bottom of the distributor so I don't want to remove until then. Any ideas ????

There can be one or 2 seals in the distributor stem. Lower is a flat cut "O" ring, and upper is a round "O" ring. Often the bottom one is left out as it's hard to find. Usually just the upper is enough unless it has some age and hardened, or shrunk.
I'm not 2L knowledgeable enough to comment on the dip-stick. Others will know.
