oil pump drive on 440 engine

Asked by Oct 03, 2015 at 05:04 AM about the Dodge 440

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

the oil pump drive shaft is not turning. however the motor will run. Is the gear
pinned to shaft? If I pull the gear and shaft?, how can I mark it to get it back
into proper time?  This motor is in a 1974 Dodge Vouge Motor Home if that
makes a difference.

You mark the distributor rotor location to a fixed location, mark rotor to the distributor cap mounting surface to get timing close. the gear at the end of the distributor drives the oil pump, the oil pump shaft slides into the bottom of the distributor, but what makes you think the oil pump shaft is not turning?
