oil pump

When turning the pump they can be fairly ratly until oil goes into pump they quieten up heaps then but can still be a litle clatery. Does it turn without any notches or tight spots. You need to put an old dissy or proper priming tool in as your main oil gallery is open with out it and you cant pressurize the whole system properly. Also may be your oil pump pick up is touching sump making more noise than normal,dont know just an idea cheers
