Default Oil pump bearing alignment on crankshaft

Trying to reinstall the timing cover, but I can't seem to get the oil pump bearing to line up right with the crank to allow the crank to slip through the cover.

If you were changing the chain and kept the old sprockets, the bottom one can be reversed, stuck into the cover from the front, and used to hold the oil pump in place.

Otherwise, you might need to carefully use screwdrivers to get things in position and not bump anything while reinstalling. A bit of thick oil might help keep things in place but it won't be easy.

Used some assembly oil and a pick and managed to figure out how to align the pump, I did a few dry runs to make sure I could get it on before I ran the rtv. Thanks for the help.
