Disconnect the large oil hose from RR corner of engine block. Input
oil here as you rotate engine backward (use 4th gear and roll car
backward with spark plugs removed). With one pint of oil installed
this way the oil pump will be full and will pump. It may still
require up to 30 seconds of cranking to fill the oil cooler and hoses
and filter before you see pressure on the gauge.
