I am not trying to be rude, but get a manual, haynes, or better yet the book, how to rebuild your nissan/datsun ohc engine by tom monroe. I used the book about a week ago and it was great. Basically, with the oil pump and dist out, you set the engine to top dead center for firing I believe and aalign the pip mark with the oil spray hole on the pump, then turn it back a little, then slide it in and bolt the oil pump in, The offset should be forward, the smaller side that is, and the tang should be 11 and 5 position I think. Sorry I can not look it up though I do not have the book here. Get a manual for $11, it will help you out a lot.

Sorry Jeff, that is one of the many areas I have not yet delved into. Chapter 4 of the Haynes Manual gets pretty heavily into the ignition system. It should be able to explain it better thanI can and it even has a few pictures.
