It can be done Dick L. I was able to run a coat hanger thru the hole and the cam shaft. I bent the end of a coat hanger and was able to keep enough pressure on it while tapping the starter to get it turn in little bits until the wire went all the way thru aligning the oil pump shaft with the cam shaft holes. It was in a 10 to 4 o-clock possition. I then took a 1x1 peice of oak and was able to trun the crank clock wise causing the cam shaft not to turn and giving me enough room to fit my hand up. Found spring pins as you suggested and the first one fit tight enough that I could not push it in with my fingers. Then took a crowbar and was able to push it the rest of the way in.
Not to sure if it is as tight as it should be, but!! Installed the oil pan. Put in 5 Quarts oil.
Installed the spark plugs and fired it up. Hit 18LB of oil pressure and settled down to 12 in about 10 minuites. If the pin slips out I know what to do. Have several more pins and may have to beat the next one in if, and that's if it comes out.
Doing it from start to finish will take about an hour. Thank you for all your help with finding out it was the pin for the oil pump and for the pictures. Only one that threw me was the trailer hitch ball looking thing. Not sure what that is?
Again thank you Dick L
