Priming Oil Pump SBC 350
 
I just rebuilt my 350 motor, and when i am priming it oil only comes out on the drivers side head, and it only comes out of 5 of the rockers. It doesnt come out of any rockers on the other side. What could be the problem?

What type Priming Tool are you using? If it doesn't have the 2 Lands at the bottom like the Distributor does, oil wont flow out to both sides of the Block, Heads.

You may also have to turn the motor over 1/4 turn at a time to fill all the oil galleries in addition to haveing the proper priming tool

well i rented a priming tool from autozone, and now oil comes out all of the rockers when priming it. But when the motor is running oil doesnt come out of any of them.
