Why Doesn’t The Ignition Rotor Spin/rotate On My 94 Honda Accord LX

I have a 94 Honda accord which I serviced a few days ago by doing the following. Replaced the valve cover gasket. Replaced the distributor cap because it was cracked. Replaced the Ignition Rotor since the cap was off. Replaced the Spark plugs and wires. Once the work was completed the car started up just fine and was driven without any issues. Then the engine cut off after driving about 90 miles and it wouldn't start again. It just cranks and nothing much after that. ...

94 Honda Accord Rotor Bolt

How the hell do you get the bolt off the rotor? It's turned at a bad angle and I can't even see if it's a phillips head, or what. Also, the valve cover gasket is pretty much shot and there's oil in all the spark plug wells, the car should still run, right? It's worked fine up until now, and I know it needs to be fixed, but the car stopped running to day and I changed the ...
