Post priming the engine oil

I am priming the oil pump on a 327 with a high volume oil pump but oil is only coming out of maybe about two rockers is this normal or should it pump oil out of all 16

You should be getting lots of oil. What type of tool ar you using to turn the pump? If you are not using the correc tool or one made from a modified distributor shaft, you are not driesting the oil flow in the designed passages and galleys.

What about your gauge? Priming till you get a reading on your gauge is all you need.
