Good luck with the "shimming".
As for the distributor oil leak, it is much more likely from the seal on the spinning shaft itself, located below the weight plate.
Removing the shaft is not too difficult; first, knock out the pin holding the drive gear on, being sure to mark which side goes on which side of the shaft(so you don't get your ignition timing 180 degree off upon reassembly).
You can now knock th shaft up through the top of the distributor and see the seal(some early J-Hs did not even have a seal!!).
