    The distributor o ring is described here http://hondaswap.com/general-tech-maintenance/how-change-distributor-o-ring-81866/.
    The rear main seal is at the rear of the engine , where the crankshaft couples to the transmission.
    Incidentally a badly leaking distributor o ring can appear to be a leaking rear main seal since the distributor is located directly above the rear main seal.
