Yes has been many years since I had to help a "friend" with this find tube that shaft has to to be hand pressed into-tight fit, OD smaller than distributor guide hole, slip shaft down and rotate until you feel it drop and then drag when turning. Use a rod that fits thru the tube to push shaft down while pulling tube free.

As pointed out below yes remove the collar....

I have used another way:

Take the clip off the rod and then get a 5/16" thin wall, deep, 1/4" drive socket with 10 inch extension, use a sticky wheel bearing grease on the bottom of the rod and a lighter grease on the top of that rod and insert the top of the rod into the socket. Be sure that top side grease holds the rod in the socket. Then, slowly and carefully insert that rod down the distributor hole and into the oil pump.

Then, after the drive shaft has gone into the oil pump and is inserted all the way, hold the socket with a long, right angle pliers or spark plug boot pliers to remove the socket drive extension. Use carb cleaner to spray all the grease from inside the socket ... re-insert the socket drive extension and carefully remove the socket.

Best to remove the pan and pump and install it with the clip, but it can be installed like Randy said.

You remove the distributor later and could be in for major surgery then when the shaft is in the pan.
