Did you prime the motor befor you fired it??Did you soak the lifters in oil befor puttin um in??I'd take the distributor back out and prime the motor till all the rockers are getting oil this way your sure you have oil.And watch your presure when your priming it make sure you got good pressure.

How long have you run it? Did you rev it up a bit after verifying you have oil pressure? If you packed the pump before firing the grease gets into the lifter and needs some heat to melt before you'll get oil to the rocker. As long as you squirt oil on it by can you can run her for a while...as long as you have oil pressure! Give us more info. I always use vaseline for this reason, lubriplate is a big no-no.

And I don't want to hear questions why I have a tub of vaseline in the shop and Pinup girls on the walls! :p Hey, all women know what building cars is...masterbation. <img src="graemlins/spank.gif" border="0" alt="[spank]" />

Make sure you have a empty distributer body when you prime, otherwise there is no way oil can reach the lifter oil galleys...

And so is chassis grease...

Oh...If I thought that, I would sneak into your shop at night and put sand in it...

Prelubing a fresh engine before fire is very important. As mentioned, you can use an old distributor base or the primers themselves are not that expensive.

That's nothing...My wife has always said sex with me was boring. I thought nothing of it until recently when she cut me off fully. I had to take matters into hand. My hand fell asleep!

Now I know what she was talking about. And after all the years I thought she was losing conscience while I was making love to her...sob...
