Oil priming via electric drill and tool, Left bank (Odd/Drivers side) is pushing oil up the push-rods and over the rockers pretty well.
But the Right (Even/Passenger side) is mostly light or dry?
Flow at #6 both rockers, some at #4 exhaust, but not really seeing oil flow to the rest.
I took the push rods back pout and used compressed air to confirm the are not p[lugged.
They all had some oil in them.

Suggestions, am I being overly concerned?

Don't worry about it. That oil passage is just not the easiest path at the spot that it engine is resting. You can crank the engine over and try again or just be done with it. You got the oil primed and it is good to go. Pull the valve covers while its running or after it has run just to prove it to yourself. Everything will be oiled.

Are you using a priming tool that has the part that completes the oil galley?

If you look at the distributor just above the gear, that large groove is part of the oil galley.

Yes, but by hand with a breaker bar.
Going to get the starter mounted and wired up.
Then I will Prime with the engine turning over.
Would be happier to see similar flow at both banks.
I have to complete wiring the test stand in any case.
