Let me add to this while not to add to your confusion.
You put the chain and gear on dot to dot, turn the crank 360* and drop the dist. in. It doesn't matter where the rotor points as long as you follow the firing order from there on. Wherever the rotor points is #1 tower. Dropping the dist. in so the rotor points to #1 on the cap only applies if the cable's haven't been removed from the cap before the dist. was removed.
I prefer to get it ready for dist drop and leave it out for ease of installation of the engine without banging the dist. against the firewall and it's easier to access the top bell housing bolts. Then when you drop the dist in you can position the vacuum can for clearance between the firewall and the intake and carb. so you have room to rotate the dist. to set the initial timing.

Are you confused yet? I hope not. I'm just trying to simplify it as much as I can to help you out. It's really easy to do and after a couple of times it's a gimmie!

Naw. all post's are sound advise. I just feel as I am adding to the confusion as he's getting it from all directions at the same time. We haven't even talked about engauging the oil pump drive shaft yet.

I know Sqz, Just messing with you , The OP needs to be walked through these thing's as he said he is a rookie with this stuff, So i hope he get's it about the oil pump shaft. I hope he see's this and ask us about it cause i am not real sure he know's about it. And you when you get so many $ in something you want it right.

No. You orient the oil pump to the dist. Not sure it that is what you meant to say, if it is I am sorry. You align the oil pump shaft to the dist, not the dist to the oil pump. You install the dist at TDC, then you may have to take a long screwdriver and turn the oil pump shaft to where it will align with the dist. So it will sit flush with the intake manifold.

Much easier to do this before you drop the motor in the car.

I cheat! I drop it in where the rotor points to where I want #1 at and I get a buddy to bump the engine over while I hold the dist. down till the dist. drops into the shaft groove. Bloop! it's done. bring it back to TDC comp. install cap and wires.
Shame on me, my bad? or just lazy?

Sometimes there was a water pump rear cover gasket included in a rebuild gasket set, but I don't think that's what yours is. I'm kind of curious now, too...

V8mazda, that round gasket isn't something that fits your 1st generation SBC, so no worries there. Maybe it is something for the second gen LT1/LT4, like the Optispark ignition cover gasket? Anyone out there know?? I've never worked on one.
