Sounds like a good idea! It was primed up past the rockers but i like the idea of the distributor/drill method

I added in an oil pressure gauge on the last one for an insurance policy.
That's the only way to go. Almost instantaneous oil pressure at initial startup.

Hey guys, something came to my mind on this so I came to check it out. I lied about doing a break in we never actually did any break in at all. Except later on I did sorta one. I'm a Christian and this just came to my mind today and I want to apologize for lying. Sort of amazing since the engine hasn't blown up or flattened my cam with no break in like what I read about. Again I apologize and hope yall have a great evening

You will sleep good tonight. Not much better than having a clean conscience!
Plus you have a good running car to cruise around in!
