Pre-oiling, 2 pushrods not showing any oil?

Pre-oiling, new rebuild SBC 355

New Lunati hydraulic roller cam & retro roller lifters. New pushrods & roller rockers.

Low RPM Milwaukee 1/2" HD drill & tool in distributer hole turning oil pump, getting 35PSI

Turned over motor by crank dampener bolt, about 20 times, while running drill (buddy helped).

2 pushrods not showing any oil through the rocker holes (1 on each head). the rest show plenty.

I removed the 2 pushrods & they were about 1/2 full of oil.

Does this show a problem or will starting the motor up make them oil properly?

Thanks, I was hoping this was the case.

I will put extra molly grease on these 2 pushrods & rockers.

Now I'm putting new PAC beehive valve springs on, with heads on engine. They are stronger & taller unloaded. PITA
