Set the engine to TDC... or if you don't have the belt on, align the crankshaft dot to the intermediate shaft sprocket scribe mark (like you are setting for timing belt installation). It is best to have the belt on to help prevent the intermediate shaft from turning, but have the marks set to TDC. You want to install the pump so that when it is fully seated, the slot that you view from inside the distributor hole is parallel to the center line of the crankshaft. Of course that means the distributor needs to come out and you must note its rotor position which should be pointing to the #1 cylinder contact inside the distributor cap. After you install the pump (before you put the pan on), make sure all timing marks are lined up and the distributor is pointing to #1 spark plug contact. Make a couple of trial installs of the pump if necessary because the bevel gears will cause the pump shaft (and the slot) to turn a little. When you are sure everything is lined up, put the pan on. You will have to perform basic distributor timing after you get it running.

Yes, the cotter key stays in and of course the pickup gets reconnected with a new O-ring. there is no gasket for oil pump to block, but they recommend a sealant instead.
