The only way that oil would get into the distributor is if the o-ring at the base of the distributor is damaged. To check this, do the following.
Remove the distributor cap. You will see the distributor rotor inside. With a sharpie, make a mark on the outside of the distributor in relation to where the rotor is pointing. (This is important so that your truck is still in time when you reinstall the distributor)
Remove the bolt holding down the distributor. It is commonly a 1/2" or 13mm bolt. Pull the distributor. At the base, you will see an O-ring in a groove at the bottom of the shaft just above the drive gear. If you don't see this O-ring, or it is damaged, that is your problem with oil in the distributor.
When installing the distributor, make sure your mark on the distributor housing is in line with your rotor. Clean and reinstall your dist. cap.

I have the same problem. I was told that there are 5 or 6 vacuum line diagrams for the same truck. I called the Mazda dealer and they told me for $$$ per hr they would fix it for me. It was not worth there time to research something that old. I took that to mean that it is not on a dvd. Most likely a book , old shop manual. I have asked several people who own Mazda B2000 and most have replied that they removed most of the lines. And got it to run and forgot about it. I know this is not what you want to hear. But after a yr or so of looking that is what I have found.
