Ken, as Bill suggested, the first thing to do is prime the oil pump.  I had
no oil pressure when I rebuilt my Austin Marina 1.8 and it was because the
oil pump had drained.  I pulled the oil pan off again, filled the pump and
reinstalled it with instant results.

In hindsight, if I were to do it again, I think I would remove the oil
pressure switch and fill the oil passageways with a hand squirt oil can.

Good luck with it.
