Can you believe how much oil is being dumped/lost at the cam timing gear in that video!  It looks like an open faucet.....

Rebel Machine... Ah ha!, you are Correct afaik... Just fail to recall how 2 keys hold 3 pieces!...

Yes!... Yikes!... Those Timing Chain Sprockets Grooves are hemorrhaging Oil!...

Oil Pump moves only a certain volume of oil, pressure results from volume vs loss...

The "other side of the coin"...
Guess while we're at it, this also impacts Distributor Drive Gears.
Correct interface between Distributor Shaft and Oil Pump Gear Shaft...
Wish I still had some known factory original parts to measure...
Wonder if Matt at BullTear has any original AMC Engineering Drawings of this area?
An AMC rebuild will replace Oil Pump Gears and often the Distributor.
Resulting in the mating of two new aftermarket non-stock items with possibilities
of incorrect dimensions and/or fit or interference in the below circled areas.
Compounded even further when the Timing Chain Cover is replaced. 
Square Corners can run up against radius of machining preventing proper engagement.
Causing Oil Pump, Distributor, and Distributor Drive Gear problems... And...
this interface is "hidden" once the Distributor Drive Gear is installed on the shaft!
All new parts must be on-hand and trial assembled well before doing final assembly.
Your all's thoughts?

I'd really like to see 401MATCOUPE's video, but all I get is a red X...

Am I missing a plug-in or piece of software to view it??
(Sorry.. Not very computer savvy...)

Or is it viewable on another site somewhere??
