We have milled a lot of blocks and heads and never have had a problem with the distributor not going down properly. I would say that if you got the manifold bolted on ok, then it should not be up that far.
I have two distributors sitting at the shop that I can look at on Monday morning. I will take a look to see what type of wear there is on the gear and where the oil pump shaft fits in.
Send me a reminder e-mail either late tonight, or early Monday so I will get it at the shop instead of here at home.
