For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.

I have a motor that was rebuilt approximately 3 or 4 years ago. I'm new to the LS. On the old small blocks I would spin the oil pump with a tool in the distributor hole. Not sure how to prime the LS motor before the first start.

Thanks. I had the valve covers and the intake off and there is still assembly lube on every thing. Should be good. Just wanted to be safe.

Mine only sat for 6 months before first start. What I did was pull the spark plugs, disconnect the coils and spin it with the starter until I had oil pressure. The hooked it all up real quick and it fired right up. Good luck.

That's what I'd do, even if I had a way to pressure fill it.
