Top end not getting oil up from lifters

Bought a performance motor Chevy 383 solid lifter roller cam, a couple of years ago and finally got in my '56 this week. Primed the motor on the stand, adjusted the valves. After setting up the motor in the car and firing it up, the valve train sounded a little to loud even for solid rollers. Removed one cover to reset the lash and found that I had only two lifters getting a dribble of oil. Checked the other side and found no oil being pumped up from the lifters. Had checked the plugs in the front (behind the timing gear) they were in, oil pressure at the back of motor is 60#. Need some help.
