I CAN'T EVEN FIND A PIC ON GOOGLE IMIGES, But the gear is on a small {2"## shaft, that is droped into the hole, and matched to the oil pump drive rod,,,,then the dist. is dropped into it....the gear is not on the distributor,,,,,

Yes, there is a thin cupped washer on the end of oil pump drive shaft. Last time I built a motor my buddy was bolting up pump and putting pan on while I was doing something else. He forgot to install shaft in pump and we did not realize until everything was in car and stabbing distributor. I just took that little washer off with pliers (it is attached to shaft). Then slightly bent a piece of metal tubing just tight enough to wedge the shaft end into it. Then I just installed pump shaft into pump down through distributor hole. You just have to have distributor clocked correctly when you stab it or you risk shaft sticking in distributor and then pulling out of pump and falling into oil pan when you pull distributor back out to align shaft into pump. So yes there is a thin washer on pump shaft.
