Yes, the galley plugs are installed and I am reading the pressure at the plug by the distributor.
The drill I am using is running at 900 rpms. Ran the pre oiling tool today for 5 minutes with the gauge showing approximately 50 lbs. At the 5 minute mark oil began flowing from number 1, then 3, 5 and 7. After about two more minutes 2-8 began to seep oil.
2-8 definitely do not have the oil volume of oil entering the rocker arm.
Is my inability to attain an equivalent flow from 2-8 related to the rpm of my drill or the geometry of the oil passages or perhaps something else?
As Bogie suggested I will have an oil can standing by when I fire the motor this weekend.
This is my first motor and perhaps I am being overly cautious, but for the first time I am willing to take a few extra precautions to minimize the risk of problems down the road.
