Gas in Exhaust; Distributor Leaking Oil 200 1988

"I removed the 13 mm retaining bolt in the top rear. The distributor is seized on. How do I remove it"
You can try gently tapping the base hold down "ear" to get the distributor crack loose. But be wary that the metal is brittle. Or grip the metal body with adjustable jaw pliers. Then rotate back and forth while pulling up.

"and not change the timing or reinstall the distributor in the wrong tooth position?""
On the distributor metal rim there is a mark that the rotor should point to for spark plug one at Top Dead Center.

Your engine may be running rich.
