304 oil pump gear question

I bought a new oil pump gear kit from 4WD and it seems like it's binding up.
I can turn it with a large flat screw driver but it doesn't turn smooth at all. Is something really wrong? It's packed with vasoline, so lubrication isn't the problem.

I know what you're thinking. Did he fire six shots or only five?

How did it spin before the vaseline, fairly easy?

Pretty much the same. I am going to remove the oil pump cover and check it with feeler guages (something I should have done before.)
