There should be a notch in the distributor shaft, just below the housing, for a large O-ring tht encircles the shaft. Perhaps that O-ring is missing.
He's getting oil INSIDE the disty, not weeping out around the outside of the shaft.
You see, oil is supposed to be wicked up around the spinning part of the disty shaft, to lubricate it.
In this case, the oil is wicking all the way up the shaft, and past the seal inside.
It is possible to remove the shaft from the disty and reseal it (in theory, don't know where you'd get the seal)
That said, I agree with Turbone that it's probably a PCV issue. If your PCV isn't working properly, Boost pressure will push oil out all kinds of places.

Is there a vacume advance ? ruptured diafram have a bunch of ea82 disribs magic eye or magnetic pu ?
87 GL-10 would be MPFI, probably turbo.
Oil in disty wouldn't affect magnetic pickup of old carb distys.
He's having problems with the "magic eye" type......oil blocks the light passing through slots.
Could be worse, could be a Nissan KD24, or an Isuzu gas 2.6.....they use the same disty guts, mounted sideways coming out the head. They have this problem very often.
