Hello everyone, I'm looking at installing a dry sump oiling system on my small block. I would like to prime the system before starting the engine and do it in a no hassle manner. I saw that Peterson fluid systems has a remote oil filter bracket that has a "preoiler " on it. I wrote them to ask how this product could push... or pull oil through the external oil pump
? Never got an answer. Any body here have a suggestion?
Thanks in advance

It’s pretty common to use a 12 volt oil pump such as seen in the link I included as a pre oiler. These are often used as post oiler for turbos after shut down but should be suitable as a pre oiler.

Oh ok, use a separate electric oil pump to prime the engine. Brilliant I will look into it.
Thanks Bogie

the primer has its own supply from the tank that discharges into the the line going into the engine from the remote filter. There is a check valve to block flow when the line into the filter is pressurized.
I went back to the old way of doing it by taking the belt off and driving the pump with a long belt and a pulley in a drill motor steadied on the roll bar---takes a few minutes longer but is simple and cheap.
