Any tips on getting the distributor back in the right place when I pull it? Would it be best to mark the body of the dizzy and where the rotor is pointed when it pulls off the oil pump gear?



Ill have good photos of a epic head gasket failure to share...

Yes to your question but I take it a step further. I don't have my shop manual handy but I rotate the engine until I have it timed with the rotor at #1 firing position. I mark the position of the distributor before removal. Its a bit of a trick going back because the shaft rotates slightly when the gear engages and you have to account for that. Do a final check of the timing once you have it back up and running.

I thought I told you how to do it last time you were out here? Mark the position of the body installed, pull cap, then start to pull the dist. Upwards- once the gear has disengaged from the cam, mark where the rotor points to. To reinstall, have the body indexed close to where it was before (first mark) then insert the dist. With the rotor pointing at the second mark.
Where the rotor points with the dist fully installed does not matter if you do it this way.
