i made the mistake of not double checking the distrubutor height until putting the motor in my boat, went to put it in last night and its sticking approx .300" to high
its a standard 9.8 deck height block, standard cam height etc.
i bought the billet oil pump and oil pump driveshaft from boostpower, called them this morning and alexi confirmed that he shipped me a standard length, which is what i should of needed.
he did mention due to cylinder heads being cut down, mains being machine etc that could have changed where the dist. needs to be, he recomended a slip collar dist. to solve the problem, does anyone see any issues with a oil pump driveshaft being to long (i still think this one was longer than stock, even though he claims they shipped a stnd. length) will it hold the dist. gear to far up and not fully engage the cam gear, i know they are engaging right now and i know the slip collar would work, just not sure if its going to be problem free. just invested a huge amount of time and money and i dont really want to risk it.
right now if i pull out the dist. and measure from the top of the oil pump driveshaft to the sealing surface on the manifold its 6.750"
