I figured that was the case. I'll fill, then try it in the pan of oil first to see what happens, it's a moroso 22185 pump/pickup combo, and it's high volume, so if that don't work, I'll be tearing it down further, hopefully not though.
I know bbb's you pack the gears with Vaseline, but they have that mile long draw tube to pull through. But, Chevys don't have that to deal with.
I'll grab some pics of the progress this time as well, I have slack off terribly on that.
