The ones I've done....I get oil out of the push rods BEFORE I spin the engine. That's why they call it priming!
Fill everything with oil BEFORE subjecting cam and crank/w rings with no EVIDENCE of oil flow.

"You can get the heater hot faster if you rev the day lights out of the engine too....but that's not how it should be done."

Maybe I'm being too picky but I want to SEE oil from the farther-est point in the engine(oil pan to rocker arms) THEN I know the oil system is full/primed.
