Question on Oil Priming a BB Chevy

I am trying to prime a BB Chevy using the integral oil pump and the correct oil priming tool for this motor. The left bank of pushrods/rocker arms are priming fine but the right bank just exhibit periodic bubbles and no sustained flow. I ran the priming tool for at least 10 minutes and periodically rotated the crankshaft by hand to try to prime the entire engine. Anyone have any experience with a similar issue and suggestions about what I should do to solve this problem.
