The distributor would not go in because the oil pump is locked up. There is a second problem. The main rear seal is not in correct, which I did not see until I was under the car trying to figure out if I could get the oil pan off without removing the engine. Looks like the 2-piece adaptor was not put on with the care it should have been and it cocked the seal. I will inspect the rear main bearing cap, put in a new rear main seal and put a new oil pump and distributor drive shaft on. The order was placed today. The Hi-vol. pump will have the pickup welded in place.
So much for running this weekend, or next weekend too. Sometimes things just don’t work out, but God has a plan.
