Gun Laker, I the exact problem on my I was rebuilding my 307. It turn out the distributor housing did not sealed properly were the oil passes around to the lifter gallery. If was you I would replace the distributor. If that does not work, you have to pull the engine out. Put it on a engine stand, drop the oil pan, use a small can full of oil put it on the pickup then turn the pump the gutted distributor or distributor primer pump, with a hand drill and see where the oil is escaping. Hope this help you.
