No oil pressure

The motor is in.  I don't have carbs or ignition hooked
up, I just wanted to get oil pressure before firing it up
so I tried cranking it on the starter.  The needle won't 
budge.  I grounded the sensor wire and the guage read pressure.
I tried squirting oil down the oil cooler line back into the
line that is connected to the oil pressure guage.  Disconnetcting
the O.P. sender I don't even get any squirting out the lines.

Any ideas?  Short of pulling the motor and trying another
oil pump?

Note that I did pre lube the oil pump with assembly lube and it seemed to 
pump just fine.
