Re: Prime Time
yes you should see the oil pressure on the gauge using the drill.
I did mine by drilling with valve covers off till oil came out the rockers then turned the crank by hand 90deg then drilled again till oil came out the rockers. both times had 30psi on the gauge while doing this I had an extra gauge and plastic line as I use copper on the main gauge in the car I used the extra gauge and plastic line so I could watch the oil pressure as I was doing this. once the drill stops so will the pressure. FWIW
