Yes. The camshaft drives a gear on the distributor which in turn drives the oil pump shaft.

Yeah, you will. NAPA Auto parts used to carry an Electronic Ignition kit (Echlind I think) that will directly replace the points system without replacing the distributor. It's been a very long time since I've done a conversion but I've done it to a '66 Dodge Dart and a '68 F-100 - years ago.
