SVO MUSTANG BLOWN DISTRIBUTOR GEAR AND MODS ?

i have a 1986 svo mustang, i was driving on the expressway when the engine stopped and it backfired a couple times. i towed it home and pulled the distributor and the gear is striped along with the aux. shaft gear. my question is do i have to drop the pan?(if so i might as well pull the whole engine) or can i just pour oil through the distributor hole and through the engine and flush those metal chunks out. obviously this is a very common problem for these cars, so i dont know maybe i need a new oil pump?

to the second question. right now i bought a whole msd ignition set up for it, 6al box, blaster 3 coil, billet distributor (which someone told me he doesnt think it will work... any suggestions?) then i have a hy-35 holset turbo, FMIC,gillis boost controller,3 inch down pipe with 3 inch exhaust, and stinger header..im getting an adjustable fuel regulator along with a 255l fuel pump. any other suggestions??

Check your PM.

One thing I forgot to ask, did you install a high volume pump in the engine? Most of the folks who have re-occurring issues shearing dizzy gear teeth in these engines usually have a high volume pump. The stocker is more than sufficient for these engines.

That was what my problem was. I put a Hi volume oil pump in my car and if I was hard on her.....bye bye dizzy and idler shaft. It was only after the 3rd dizzy and idler shaft that I learned what I did wrong.
