Re: new rebuild 454

I like priming the oil pump, if for no other reason than to make certain that the oiling system is working properly prior to start up.

How did you confirm that no oil is coming to the heads? With valve covers off? How long was engine running before you shut it down due to not seeing oil come to the heads?
