Is it ok to say that everything is good or is something wrong. Keep in mind I just pulled this engine out of my truck to change rear main seal and new gaskets so I wouldnt think anything is wrong. By the way its a sbc Need help asap, start new job tommorw
Rotate the engine a quarter turn, prime again, rotate another quarter turn, prime again. See if that helps.
