Default RE: TECH: Oil pressure restriction! No oil to heads! HELP!!!

I took off the valve cover on the passenger side, unplugged the coil packs, and cranked the engine. Should oil make itto the top of the engine with only the starter turning it over? Should doing that pump up the lifters? While cranking it, only a very small bit was dripping out. It could have been coming from the journals, I couldn't get a good look at it. Anyone know? Thanks...

Have you ran it up to 2000rpms? I just built my motor and had ticking from the lashadjuster. After I ran it at 1200rpms I ran it up to 2000-2200rpms and the ticking went any and never came back. That is the start up prcedures for a ne engine but will work for you.
You shouldnt get enough pressure to get the oil up in the heads just by cranking it.

I've had it up to 3,000 RPMs before. With the valve cover off, I just started it and shut it off after 2 seconds.

I may do that, too. Especially since I ran them dry for about 20 minutes.
