When I got the motor it have a brand spanking new oil pump so I'm gunna reuse it. Now when I took it apart I didn't take note on how the oil pump driveshaft was positioned. Now I can't figure out how it works. It goes in the oil pump but on the other end it goes up towards the front of the cam. Now I'm looking at it and its hex shaped and I don't understand and it turns to turn the oil pump. Is there some kind of drive gear that goes on the end of that little driveshaft. This build came to a complete halt and its such a little problem. Any help would be great... Thanks in advance
