the last built engine I sold took 5 minutes of cranking to prime the oil pump.... that was with the fuel pump disconnected....

that means that there was no oil pressure until that point....

sometimes it takes packing the oil pump with vaseline or pumping oil into an oil galley hole above the oil pump to help it prime...


1. if you started it without getting any oil pressure..... bad...

2. if you didn't hone the cylinders or check clearances on a used block...bad....



GOOD LUCK man, and sorry you didn't ask "what should I do?" before this all happened....
