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
is some info on priming in case this comes up in a search.
Don't sweat it if every rocker doesn't oil right away. The main thing is to have the filter full and the air out of the oil galleys (this can drain back out if it sits), and to verify there is good oil pressure (no galley plugs left out, etc.).
