You need to figure out how to spin the oil pump over with a drill and the oil pan full of oil or what ever...pichup tube submurged in a bucket or something. Gen 11 bb 383/440...the distributor has a large flat screw driver tip at the bottom of the shaft that spins the oil pump. Makes a good place to spin a makeshift shaft with a drill. Can you do something like thos with this engine? If not hook a water line or hose to to an oil fitting area on the block...somewhere you would put an oil pressure gauge w.ould be perfect. You would have to just step up the size of fitting to mate with water line source. Use something like an ice maker water line on a dont need much pressure or size ...diameteter
