Thanks Malc but this is not the issue.

I was having a problem lining up the screwdriver to the slot so I took the gear off an old distributor to use as a tool to align the pump drive to exactly where I want it. I then pulled that and dropped my good dizzy in. Its going down all the way except about .030". I have at least .060" interference as I would assume about .030" required end play between the pump drive and distributor tang.

Its definately dropping in with a thud, metal to metal contact.
