So I volunteered to get my friend's 1963 Impala SS running and driving after a 22+ years nap so he can sell it. It has a QC 409 with a 3-speed on the tree. I pulled the plugs and oiled the cylinders, waited several days, then turned the crankshaft two complete revolutions from the flywheel side. Pulling the valve covers revealed virtually no sludge inside the 59,000 mile motor with open breathers. Knowing that it was not seized, I changed the oil (which, considering it's age, wasn't too bad) and filter. I removed the distributor and am trying to prime the engine with oil to avoid a dry start. I am using a Proform #66896 oil pump primer, but can't get any oil through the pushrods to the rockers on either side. I am not familiar with the W motors, but I am turning the primer clockwise as I do on SBCs and BBCs. Any tricks that I am missing to get oil to the top of the engine?
