any ideas on this , I have a 351 with a msd distributor , my problem is that when i turn the car over the dist does not turn ,it wont even turn by hand "i thought it might be the pin" and it also does not make any oil presure when i turn it over. I have tried to take it out but it is stuck, i can move it up and down about a quarter of an inch but thats it "even with prying on the dist it does not want to come out. I was just wondering if this has happened to anyone else or what should be done? pull the timming cover or just pull the whole motor to see whats wrong?

Knowing that the teeth are probably sheered off... try to bump the engine as you are prying. That may or may not help.

Pull the timing cover so you can get a good look at the cam... and also cut the oil filter open to see what sort of debris is in it.
