Drive comes from the distributor drive shaft. Very odd that it doesn't move as the engine turns over

Yup engine runs,I know the dizzy drive is not in proper location but solved by moving spark plug leads,will try and do pressure test as I have put another fuel pump on

There are two different push rod lengths, 100mm and 108mm, for two different pumps. Do you have the correct one?
