Do you have to remove the oil pump to put in the pump rod or can you just slide it in the distirbutor and put it in on a ford 302?

Better pull the pan and oil pump. The rod will fall out while you are trying to align the dist. and cam gear. You won't know it till its too late. You will ruin the engine the second it starts.
