I used an $8.00 pump sprayer from Wal Mart, took the nozzle of & hooked it to the oil pressure sending port using a short rubber hose & 2 clamps. 5 minutes later I had oil at all the rockers.

Have you considered an oil accumulator of some kind?

CVR Oil Accumulator
or
Canton Accusump

They're a lot more than $8.00 but you can set them up as a pre-oiler and as a reserve of oil in case oil pressure drops too low from big wheelies or hard cornering. I am looking to run the CVR unit in my time attack car and my Camaro. IMHO, it's cheap insurance for those who can't afford to run a full dry sump setup.

I just turned mine over with the the ignition off and no fuel in the car. Took a minute but zero issues if you used lube when assembling.

I want to try this application without one first and see what the oil pressure does. I have one on my other dragster.

I used a Cheap drill pump, a couple garden hose barbed adapters and some clear hose. Hooked my contraption to the driver front side of the block in a oil galley. (16mm thread ) One end in the block and the other in a bucket under the oil pan drain plug. Make sense?

So I guess you have considered an accumulator. :) Do you mind me asking how you like the accumulator you have on your dragster?

Last one me and my buddies did, we packed the oil pump with grease and it made oil pressure very quickly on the starter.

I have the larger moroso one. Has been on the car for 15 years trouble free and supplying oil nicely in the shut down. It has earned a thumbs up from me!

I bought an ebay preluber supposedly for an LS1 and then had to buy a few adpater fittings to make it work on my LS2. Have about $200 in it. Not sorry, it works very good. Have heard there are youtube videos of making one from some Harbor Freight $20 crap and working the same.

I always pack the pump with trans assemb. grease, works great-you can always pull the front plug, pour a little oil in to the pump just before fireup, works also.

If you prelube anywhere I'd make sure you only feed the front driver port, so everything is filtered
I actually use some clear plastic atv fuel filters w/ built in barbs inline on the feed hose. I had to do a lot of cleanng on the tank before I used it. The clear filter gives you piece of mind that nothing is going in but clean oil.

I use a Peterson remote oil filter with built in spur gear pre-lube pump. I mounted it on the little tank I fabricated which also has a good fitting lid so it stays clean between uses. Just cap the line and its ready for use in a few seconds. Their pre-lube setups are nice to leave on the car if it is something that may go weeks or months between uses.
