It drops in, but I never made the attempt to straighten up the slot on the oil pump using a long screw driver.

No I've been moving the distributor back forth, which is why I made several videos of the starting attempts and merged 'em into a few.

At some points, I didn't even have the bolt on. But I'll keep it bolted down just enough.

So now, when I turn rotate the distributor 180 degrees, do I leave the spark plug wires as is or do I redo them as well?
