This is a massive oil leak. It started about 50 miles after having the distributor replace. It runs off the top of the transmission housin, about 2/3 of the way back. I've ruled out rear main due to that. Can the two be related?

I can't take it back to the original mechanic because I've had the car transported from Denver to San Antonio.

This is a BIGGGG leak. Oil just pours out when the engine runs.

    Agree with greg, if the distributor mounting 'gasket' is missing, it will leak pretty bad. Also if the oil pressure switch, or sending unit, was damaged, it will do the same! It is mounted right next to the distributor!!!! Got to be one or the other. It aint easy to get to either. Use a mirror and a light, while engine is running to find the leak. Check oil level first thing!! Either way though, you will have to get a mechanic to fix it!!
