thats a good one,the crankshaft spins the oil pump..you need to pump oil in threw the oil sending unit....I used cleaned sandblasting gun with air.ford racing sells oil priming kit ,but cost to much.. let me know when u get it running...

which ever way u prime it,turn crankshaft over by hand at the same time your priming...that will help get all the air out...

There is a pre-olier for 160 that ord sells for 250, and Jegs as well I'll have to get you the adress off my computer at work and I'm on vacation until next monday. I think I just copied the Jegs part number and dropped it into dogpile.com. That is really the best way to go... lot of bucks riding on the line!
