    Blue loctite will suffice on those bolts. Make sure the threads are oil free and dry, or the loctite will never set and be pointless

    Before I pull it back apart I need to know all the spots I'm looking for on the top end.. where the oil travels thru just to be sure I have covered all my angles..also what do I have to do to be sure the oil pump shaft is in the correct position to meet the oil pump notch?

    Remove the the lower tappet cover and keep kicking, if you don't see oil after 30 or so more kicks then I would worry. Don't take it apart yet. Keep trying.

    IMHO the more I think about it I don't think it is a problem with the notch on the drive. I'm not so sure the case halfs would bolt up together if the drive was misaligned. And if it did wouldn't the pump drive be bound up? I would think you'd know if it was bound up as you'd try to kick it over. Pull the plug to make it easier and try what OLD CT suggests
