I know its not binding as I can lift the distributor end play by pulling up the rotor. Its not being forced up.
I'm sure you're probably fine, but were you able to tell that there is more than just 1/32" engagement between the distributor shaft and the oil pump drive shaft? Like at some point did the distributor sit way
proud of the intake (like over 1/4" or so) when the alignment between the two shafts was off?
Just checking, 1/32" is not enough engagement as I'm guessing you know.
