Welcome to Allpar. There is a bronze bushing in the block to support the camshaft auxillary shaft that drives both the oil pump and distributor. It is a possible wear item. With the distributor out, see if this aux. shaft has play. I believe that both the bushing and shaft can be serviced without pulling the intake. The bushing requires a special tool for installing that 'reams' it into position in order to hold it securely into the block. Find a service manual.
These could also raise problems of a timing mark that won't hold still while setting timing. Does yours?
If all this happened after the new distributor, is it possible that they gave you a wrong distributor? Remans can be known for that, you really don't know what the previous owner did to it or if it was identified wrong. Is there a metal tag on it with a Chrysler part #?
