Theres no excessive play in the distributor itself. It's new. The distributor is in the slot for the oil pump and seated on the manifold (Edelbrock Performer). It's where it belongs. I can move it side to side about 1/8" total at the top. I read on a webpage I found on big block Chevys that on that engine it is caused by the hole in the manifold being made intentionally oversized to accomodate slight misalignment of the intake manifold. They said just center it and bolt it down. Does that sound right? Thanks
