First start up no oil pressure
Recently fired up my engine for the first time on a fresh build, but to my disappointment there was no or trace oil pressure. My mechanic said it may have jumped to 10psi! Car ran for less then 10 sec twice..

I used a melling engine primer kit, filled the oil filter then primed and fired the engine. And nothing! I have been reading up on this issue and I'm going to try one more time. Drain the oil, re prime and try again. This time I will jack up the back of the car, my question, is they anything I'm missing? Is there a better way to prime the pump? Also before I fired the engine I turned it over by hand about 3 times!
