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.
