oil to rockers

My buddy just called and said his engine has no oil to the rockers on the right bank...except # 2 exhaust.
This engine is stock 350 vortec heads. The engine was just rebuilt only started a few times. The engine is new to him too. The #2 rocker is peeing a stream 2 feet high. The left bank is oiling normal. ????

Thats your problem right there.

Re: oil to rockers

How long has he run it ? Sometimes it takes a few minutes to get oil coming up to all of the rockers.

He has primed the engine and has had it running about 8 min.

Re: oil to rockers

Any chance he has the valves adjusted way too tight ? If one rocker on that side is getting oil, that means the oil galley is full and the others should also be oiling.

Did he turn the oil pump shaft the right way?
