Lower seal has failed in the distributor and oil is working its way up the shaft, distributor will have to be replaced.

This is of course assuming you have a good engine and the crankcase ventilation system is fully operational.

the distributor shaft goes down into the engine where the oil is- if you are doing it yourself, pull the dist and see if there is a little oil seal you can replace-
