aa

Crank turns the cam gear (front bolted on) and the cam gear (machined) turns the distributor and the distributor turn the oil pump (wet sump). Sound like the oil pump may have got tight not allowing the distibutor to turn it, the softer distributor teeth would sheer and possible break a cam tooth.
