I would pull the pan back off and install that stop, can you imagine the frustration of
priming the motor and pulling the drill out only to realize the oil shaft is laying in the
bottom of the oil pan after you installed the motor. Don't even second guess this one...
The washer stop goes on the top of the shaft, not near the oil pump, it stops the shaft from being
pulled out during distributor removal. The oil pump needs removed and the oil pump shaft
needs to be installed with the stop washer first, THEN reinstall the oil pump lining up shaft to oil pump drive, AND DON,T FORGET THE OIL PUMP TO BLOCK GASKET AND THE PICKUP TO
OIL PUMP GASKET... Use locktite sealant too, can't remember if it's the red or blue but
use that which is oil resistant.
