Default Oil Pump Driveshaft

Do you guys normally keep the toothed washer on the oil pump drive shaft installed? It's late and I'm retarded, and I installed the oil pump + pickup + pan and turned around to look at the drive shaft. It's an ARP unit. I was going to drop it down the distributor hole, but the washer catches before it reaches the drive hex on the pump.

So........ do I need to drop das pan?

You have to pull the pan and pump then put the oil pump shaft through the bottom witht the end with the washer on the dizzy end. That washer is there to keep the shaft from lifting out when you pull the dizzy.

Make sure you test fit the dizzy on the block and make sure the shaft is not pushing down to hard onto the pump. It is best if you put the dizzy on then flip the engine over slide the shaft into the block till it is fully in the dizzy. button it all up.

I'm the same way. I couldn't turn the block over on the stand due to having the heads and intake installed = heavier than sh*t. Lol. Plus my oil pan studs and trying to keep the gasket in place while I hold the pan with one hand and wrench in the other made for an interesting time.

BUT, it's done. Hopefully no more stupid mistakes for awhile. Hopefully. Lol
