Make sure the engine is on TDC with the crank pulley , then install the oil pump and gear with the dot on the gear and the v on the pump lined up, when in correct , looking from the drivers fender at the distributor hole the shaft should look like a clock at 11:35 to 12:30 straight up and down almost. if off you can turn the gear a little off the dot to line it up correctly. Thank You, XXXXX XXXXX know if you have any more questions, ROY!
If you have the oil pump installed like I told you , the rotor should be at the #1 contact in the distributor cap on TDC of #1 cylinder Thanks ROY!
