A460 oiling question

Post  bbfstanger on January 28th 2017, 8:01 pm

I have an A460 block combo and while pre oiling on the stand it seems like very little oil is going to the rockers.
it just trickles out of the rocker oiling hole onto the trunion of the comp stainless rockers. smith bros pushrods .it just seems like it should be more
I have comp sportsman bushed lifter, I checked the oil band and it always stays in sight looking thru the oil galley whole.
Its got a kaase alum. pump 85psi with my drill, 50wt penn oil. it has a .062 restrictor in the frt and .075 in the rear.
Just about to get it dyno'd and just want to make sure things are ok.
any question or info I left out just ask.
thanks
john

It'll be ok. That straight 50 wt oil has got a little to do with it.
