I will hopefully be getting my short block back soon with new pistons,big end bearings and I was wondering is there any way to prime the oil pump before starting and anything else I should do before I turn the key for the first time.
After that,if I was going anywhere,I was running.

you could crank it over without the plugs in for 30 seconds or so but its unnecessary, thats what assembly lube is for.

Not your typical heated leather seated track day car but it does have heated leather!

I unplugged the injectors on my K series and cranked it until the oil pressure light went out, I also pre-filled the oil pump as well as using Torco assembly lube when I built the engine.
