I have one of the Mopar 528 cams that ate the oil pump at 800 miles. It's in a box at my shop. I can look at it next time I'm down there.

If the oil pump drive gear is damaged, how are you going to drive the stock distributor?

The same gear on the cam, drives both the oil pump and the distributor.
If you're saying it just ate the gear on the oil pump, but the cam is still ok, then why change the cam?
I'm having trouble understanding what you are trying to do.

sorry! i have a belt drive oil pump ! had my .528 cam in it and lost the wall in the exhaust port on my over ported head, antifreeze in the oil wiped two lobes! was looking for a cheaper option than ordering new if i could make it work! my 528 cam also hurt the oil pump gear! that is why i was using a external pump!

Sorry it took so long. Found the cam but the gear has 2 teeth completely broken. No way would it drive the distributor.
