A great trick... after putting the engine on the flat spot (previous poster) Remove the bolt in front of the pump... (there are two there, the bolt you need is the top one)Push the pushrod all the way up with your finger and replace the bolt with a much longer one but only finger tight. This holds the rod in place for you while you get the pump on... make sure you replace the bolt when done, and i like to use a little sealant on it as well, as it will leak oil.
By spray adhesive the previous poster refered to high tack, which is available in a brush on, or spray.
other products are brush tack, by felpro, and felpro blue, also aviation form a gasket works well also (and looks and smells like BBQ sauce, but tastes like crap)
