Sunday night I fired up a long term build of my SBC. After about a total of 2 minutes running. I still dont have oil through the pushrods.
Here is my setup.
Properly cleaned align honed and bored 1970 block.
Scat forged crank.
Eagle 6in featherweight rods
SRP 4.020 forged pistons
Custom solid roller cam by Bullet Cams.
Morel Pressure fed roller lifters.
AFR 195 Elminators
One piece 8.000 pushrods
Melling M55 oil pump.
Engine was assembled under the supervision of a knowledgeable builder. Using proper assembly lubes. I primed the pump in a bucket of fresh oil by hand. Primed the motor with this primer for a minute or so to 40psi with this primer http://www.jegs.com/i/Proform/778/66896 ... tId=745600
Did I miss something? How long should it take for oil to make it through all the assembly lubes used in a fresh motor? Cam and lifter lube was Clevite cam lube.
