5.0 Ford Crate Motor

I posted this on another thread several days ago, but no response, so....

Have the lengths of the two SVT 5.0 oil pump drives been measured? I have in my 1999 crate motor (originally an EFI engine) the SVT M-6605-A302 and possibly need the -B302 to mate up properly with my steel geared MSD 8579 Pro Billet distributor. The -A302 seems to be about .500 too short as it only engages the dist. hex drive about .25 +/- of the .625 depth and my guess is that .500 to .5625 would be best for long engine life.
If push comes to shove, McMaster - Carr and some .250 hexstock would work - but only as a very last resort.

Help!! Thanks

i just inst older dist in my 5ltr i am building the oil pump entered but will remove and see how much is engaged. the fi dist is way longer but splines ar also longer i asumed newer fi dist used more spline to eliminate twist. looks like another lesson, will post my findings. cliff

5l oilpump drive

5l efi distributor has 5/8ths more spline thanearlyer dist. early dist has 3/8 full ccontact for oil pump drive, checked some older hex drives and out of 3 they all had only 3/8 drive contact. unless the efi drives ar shorter looks like ther is more contact onefi. one could use a hex from yblock and shorten to give more contactat dit end. i would think with a stock oil pump 3/8 would be plenty of drive, cliff

Response to Cliff

Thanks Cliff - I appreciate you looking at this. Maybe I really don't have any problem after all - though I do have a Melling HV pump rather than a stock OEM - had to change the pump and pickup when I went to a front sump oil pan - which turned out to be useless because I am using IFS instead of the I-beam axle that I originally planned, but that's another story.
I also am using a 302(5.0L) rather than the 351W's that usually power my cars.
