After 2 1/2 years of diligent restoration, I am finally trying to crank the beast - but no fuel flow.

I have a 69 chevelle with a '72 454 block. I outsourced the engine rebuild. I am using a mechanical fuel pump. When I feel into the fuel pump port I can feel two holes - that's it. Shouldn't I feel a lobe or something that actuates the fule pump arm?

Did my engine man forget to put something back on or is there something that inserts into these holes that rides on the cam rotation?

I'm not sure I quite follow you. When you remove the pump from the mount pad on the block, there is a rod that slides up into the block. This is the actuator rod, but there is only one of them, not two. But if your builder left it out, that is the problem.
