So i've finished refitting my newly rebuilt engine and am just about ready to start it up for the first time! Excited! but i cant get the oil pressure up and was wondering if im doing anything wrong.
I'm cranking the engine in 10s bursts, and i did this about 5 times but the oil pressure gauge didnt budge from 0.
I did fill the oil filter with oil, but not the oil pump when i put it on the crank. all i did was take the oil pump out of the box, squirt in some assembly lube, slap on the gasket and bolt it straight to the cam.
also i've removed the oil pressure bullet and spring. and of course i've ensured that i did pour over 4 litres of engine oil (dipstick is slap bang in the middle). no spark plugs fitted.
am i missing anything?
