I'm tryint to replace the Dristriburor. The gears mesh fine but cannot mesh with the oil pump.The problem is the connector or coupling on the oil pump is hexagon shaped and is very loose.It flops around lays towards one side rather than in the center of the hole.Is this an adapter or is something wrong with the oil pump.?
. Have not tried turning it yet for anignment purposes.
Thank you.

Try putting the shaft alone in first with a long pair of needle nose pliers and then the distributor.

Put a socket that fits on the oil pump shaft on a long extention and keep spinning the oil pump shaft until the distributer fits on it. I just had to change mine and a plyed with it for about an hour until I figured out the oil pump shaft was getting in the way then it only took me about 10 minutes to get it on

This is an old thread and likely not being watched any longer.
