Priming my 388ci SBC

Hey all, the time has come and ive begun to prime my engine.

I filled the oil filter up, rented the priming tool and started the process spinning the tool clockwise.

More quickly than I expected oil started to ooze from the pushrods except from two valves on the passenger side cylinder.

Do I have to turn the crank 1/4 revolutions and continue priming to get these last to lifters pumped up?

Should I be worried or is this rather typical?
