Re: sbc no oil from left bank
Just throwing this out there,i am wondering if something is up with the priming tool when it comes to the sealing oil passage for the side of the block thats not getting oil?
I ask that because i have seen a few times over the past 42+yrs wrenching these motors
where a dist body had excess material/flashing on it partially to almost fully blocking oil to lifters on 1 side of the motor depending on postion of dist body in the block.
So keep that in mind if you dont find the cause .
Another thing could be if you accidnetially used grey type moly assembly lube/paste on the sides of the lifters either partially or fully clogging the oil holes in the lifters stopping or greatly restricting oil from entering the lifters when only motor oil is supposed to be used on the sides of lifters .
Motor oil is rec on sides of the lifters only to avoid clogging the oil holes that can cause issues when priming oil system by hand with a drill prior to firing motor post rbld.
