New, and or replacement, oil pump drive shafts are available for all pre-62 v-8 engines. A new, ‘tall’, driveshaft is required when using an LA style distributor. The requirement is based on the change in the height of the block where the distributor mounts. The LA block is approximately 0.600″ shorter than a 392 block and approximately 0.300″ shorter than the 331-354 block. The Dodge 241-260-270 block has the same height as the LA and the LA distributor is a direct fit without additional changes. Dodge 315-325 and DeSoto engines are essentially the same as the Chrysler 331-354.
Photos of intermediate shafts are in the ‘Oiling’ section.
