What method have you found to be the easiest and what are the exact steps? I am asking because I have never stabbed a ford distributor.

Thanks for the replies guys.
I have the motor at TDC and as I was trying to put the distributor in I realised that the oil pump shaft does not sit straight so it does not want to line up. Anyone have any word of advice on how I should go about getting it in there?

Just hold down on the distributor while getting someone to "bump" the starter and it should fall right in.
Won't that mess up TDC though??

-EDIT- Never mind... I'm retarded, lol.
