Broken timing chain, broken gear on the distributor are among a couple of possibilities.

Before you go there, you need to check the timing chain as it drives the distributor.

Remove the distributor and see if the gear is broke,

the oil pump is in the oil pan.

Why are you so hung up on this pump drive. It is the last thing you need to check? Start with basics

Timing chain, yes, thats what I have been trying to tell you. The distributor drives the oil pump but power orginates from the cam turning

Roy just went outside checked and camshahaft sprocket broke. Bottom of engine free. No metal in oil pan, havent checked top half yet. What would make sprocket break besides the chain? Ran fine when I turned it off. Could it just give out or jam up?
