The cam bearings wouldn't have much too do with oiling the top of the motor, if the bearings were backwards the oil would just go right by them. Either the lifter gallery is blocked or your pushrods aren't seated correctly, or you have an internal leak somewhere that you shouldn't. Or the lifters aren't picking up oil on that side or something.

If your using a hand held engine primer make sure its one that blocks the oil passage at the distributor, other wise one side wont get any. If you've started the engine and arent getting any after some time then theres the possibility a plug wasnt installed or has came out of a oil gally, but oil pressure would be otherwise very low if this is the case.

When doing a prelube on the SBC, it is often necessary to wrench the crank over a few complete revolutions before oil will flow thru all the pushrods.

Is the intake manifold on? Without the intake, or the primer positioned as to how the distributor mounts to the complete engine, the right side lifter galley is open to the block and oil simply runs back to the pan, not only reducing total oil volume and pressure everywhere in the engine , but completely starves the right lifter galley of any oil.

Home made primer; I assuming is made from a Chevy distributor. There is a groove between two circular bosses toward the bottom, they close off the right side lifter galley, without this configuration, you've got a big leak back to the pan.

The shaft and washer won't work. The oil feed passage goes AROUND the dist housing. With a straight shaft, the oil just dumps back into the block where the dist housing would be.


Lots of places sell a straight shaft primer for Chevies. Makes no sense to me! All you end up with is what YOU ended up with! LOL Half the engine getting primed.


You need to buy a REAL Chevy primer

OR modify an old distributor for it to work.
