since your oil pump is turned off the dist.gear and the cam turns it i'd say as soon as you start it.you are priming the oil pump with a drill first though,aren't you?you can look at the oil pres.guage wile turning the oil pump with a drill and see your pres. before you start it the first time.that way you know you have oil pres. befre you start it and avoid those nasty noises.

we tried to prime it before we started it but we couldn't get any pressure and soon as we saw i had no pressure with the engine on we shut it off. Im taking the pan off today and going to check out the pump and pickup. Its a new melling high volume pump and stock pickup with stock pan. is there something wrong with this set up why i wouldn't have pressure.

Galley plugs were installed behind the cam gear?

If it is a big block make sure that a small block oil pump drive shaft was not used. Make sure the shaft is engaged in the pump and distributor regardless of which was installed.

Verify Your Gauge First!

Before you drop that pan, check your gauge against one that you know is working. Good luck, Ed. www.edgesz28.com

Figured it out. There is a oil plug under neath the main bearing cap in the very back. I put the plug in but not all the way so it wasn't getting oil. But i do now its about 60 psi. Tomorrow i need to get the paper gaskets for the carb where ou adjust the float bowls at and some tranny fluid. Carb needs adjusted just a little. Should have it going tomorrow.
