    I'm real famous for switching two adjacent wires,so I know how well they can run that way. I hate pulling the whole dist just to get a lil vacuum advance clearance.

      What I have always done if the oil pump doesn't mesh is make sure your distributor is in the proper position to seat & with the coil wire pulled out, bump the starter. When the oil pump shaft matches up, the distributor will drop down easily. Then install the hold down bracket, coil wire & properly set the timing.

      I am sure many of us like myself, have done it the hard way like John Clary and Tom B have, and EVENTIALLY it will work.

      But after learning this trick, I will never go back to all that hassle!
