You didn't say what you see there so I'll assume it's oil. If it's oil, likely the shaft, shaft bushings or top seal have worn out. To repair this the distributor needs to be removed and also the center shaft. There used to be rebuild kits for this but I recently haven't had much luck locating any. Therefore, best option is to replace the distributor itself. Get yourself a chiltons or haynes manual to find setup instructions.

Leak under distributer

The most common cause is the heater hose coming off the head, below and behind the distributer. Usually the distributer is leaking oil, which gets on the hose and damages it. If you don't fix the oil leak, which could be the distributer "o" ring, (inexpensive) or the distributer shaft seal, (expensive) cut a piece of the old hose and use it to protect the new hose from the oil.

I have a voltage leak and need to put in new distributer cap/ wires going to spark plugs.

Your video shows not the Distributor cap but the ABS control module. This Honda does not have a distributor. It's a DIS system. ( distributor-less ignition system) to replace plugs look at the rocker covers. In the middle of each cover is the plugs, 3 a side. Pull up on each coil pack/ plug boot combo and you'll find the plug under each

dry off the distributer and use wd40 /crc/ type product to remove excess water from wires and cap/ coil. First lesson do not power wash engines as the water gets inside distributer cap and a lot of other places it shouildn't. It will also blow gaskets under rocker cover and make them leak. IT will get into electrical modules and cause timing problems

Water is getting on your distributer cap..It is located directly under the water pump and getting wet..It comes as a kit (distributer cap,rotary button) and is around $120-$160.. Water pump has to come off to get to it and need to replace it as well when its off or you will just get the new one wet.
