Are you spinning it the correct direction? Clockwise is correct. Are you using a 1/2" drive or some type of high speed/power drill? I found on several engines I've built and primed that it sometimes took a couple minutes for oil to get to the top even using a strong 1/2" drive drill. Are you getting ANY oil out of the pushrods and no pressure or nothing at all?This engine was running when disasembled. All of the oil galley plugs are in and full of oil. My prime tool is an old dist cut to work. I've spun drill for at least 2 min and no pressure. What could be wrong?
Nothing at all. I took off the oil pan and took off the pump, submerged screen in oil and spun by hand and oil squirted out. I also pushed air into the rear main cap and air came out where the oil filter goes. I am now in the process of filling it back up and trying it again.Are you getting ANY oil out of the pushrods and no pressure or nothing at all?
