My first attempt at installation of fuel pump was not successful. I’m sure there is trick to it. When putting the pump against the block the gasket is moving. I had to permatex the gasket to the block. After the gasket dries, when I try to assemble the pump and I push and wiggle the pump so the bolts line up, the arm of the pump goes upward. Is this correct?

Update.After a lot of struggling I managed to get it bolted on. Mission accomplished. Now I’m waiting for a new gas line pump to Carb and then I can start it. I hope there are no leaks. 🤞

Even with the camshaft lobe at its low point, there's a fair amount of spring pressure against the fuel pump lever arm. If you happen to try installing the pump with the high point of the cam lobe facing outward, there's a LOT of spring pressure to deal with. That's why some of the above comments recommend turning the engine over until the cam lobe is facing away from the hole in the block. Once you install a few dozen pumps, the procedure becomes pretty routine. At least with a stovebolt six you don't have to deal with a pushrod that slides down and blocks installing the pump, like happens on a Chevy V8 engine!

So I completed the job. Oil pump and truck run great and no leaks! Thank for your help.
