The auxiliary shaft goes through the oil pump's rotor, and is then secured with a strong little circlip (Item 13 in the attached JPEG). If you want to take it off, plan on a fight. With the rotor on the shaft, it's like a big nail, and that head (the rotor) is not going to pull forward through the housing.

If the auxiliary shaft is moving forward at all (end float is only 0.0005"-0.0015"), much less disengaging the distributor, then that circlip must be missing. Or, the rotor has really made a mess of of the inside of the auxiliary housing.

Correcting that... or even just investigating it... will requiire removing the auxiliary housing from the engine for further dis-assembly.

Have Fun,
Tim Engel
