A ? about the summit brand oil primer.

Some time ago i purchased one of those Summit brand oil primer thingies from Summit, yesturday i used it on a friends 350 sbc, so he would'nt have to dry start the engine, and while doing so the oil only came up thru the back 4 push rod's on either bank, and the front 4 remained dry.We used a regular drill for this and tried it in both diretion's, and as far as we both go this was our first time do'in this and was'nt sure if it was ok or not, but in any event we burned up two drills in the process.Now i would like to know if we did this the correct way, or should there have been a lot more oil from all of the push rod's instead of just the back 4 on either bank, and should the oil shoot all the way across the gerage floor or something, i just wonna know what to exspect because i dont think we did i the right way, but he started the motor anyway and said the heck with it if it blow's it blow's. (Please Advise)

That is about normal, in my experience. Priming an engine is hard on an inexpensive 3/8" drill. My Ryobi 19.2v cordless strains, but my Makita 1/2" really pumps the oil pressure up.

Turn the engine over into a few different spots as you prime,I use a speed wrench on the primer,works great saves your drill and gives you a workout.
