oil system

I do not know anything about this engine.. Is the oil pump driven by the distributor, or a idler gear... Or is it burried in the block some place where you cannot get to it????

OK

Then i guess you have 2 choices.

You can remove the timing belt and fab up a tool to just spin the oil pump. Prime the engine and then install the timing belt.

Or you will need a pressurized system. Like a air tank. fill it half way with oil. The you will need to find a tap on the motor to install the line from the tank. In effect what you would be doing is blowing the oil through the engine.

i personally would do the first one...
