Well, my Dad got back in town from vacation and he thinks the distributor is still usable after the bottom is cleaned up (he's a mechanic). He has some thrust washers that will work, and some shims if needed. He isn't sure what happened either, but agreed that I should take it to the place that recurved it to see what they have to say, which I will try to do tomorrow. When I reinstall it, if the oil pump shaft isn't floating, then I can grind it a little for clearance since I already have the pan off.
