I'm with S-10, totally confused...what do you mean an odd number of teeth??? If it didn't have the same tooth pattern as the dist it would never mesh. Also, 180 out is referring to the position of the rotor when the dist is installed, meaning it is turned too far away from the #1 plug tower, it has nothing to do with the "number of teeth" anywhere. Did you rotate the motor at all while the dist was out, even a little bit? You can't use a long screw driver to rotate the oil pump shaft? And the oil pump will stop the dist from dropping in if the oil pump slot is not lined up.
I'm the one your momma never told you about...
