1965 Mustang 6 cyl - no oil to rocker arms
Ive wanted a 65 mustang since I was 8 and finally was able to buy myself my 1st project at 26! Im new to cars in general and this is my 1st project. My step dad is teaching me as we go. So bear with me if what Im saying doesnt make sense. Im trying to explain best I can with as little knowledge as I have. Anyways, the mustang I have doesnt start up yet, we think its a timing issue but we havnt gotten to that stage yet. Our issue now, is when we run the oil pump with a drill, there doesnt seem to be much oil coming out to the rocker arms. We took the arms off and we are getting a little splatter, but not nearly enough to fill the arm and send oil where it needs to go. Ive read a bunch of inconsistent info from different places. My question is, how much oil should be coming out of the back hole when the assembly is off when running the pump with a drill? Ive heard not much will but more will when you start the engine (which I cant at the moment, other issues with timing needs to be resolved) and Ive also heard that it should look like the Bellagio Fountain and youll know its working. Curious if this is normal. Tomorrow we are trying a new oil pump, checking that the oil level is high enough, and double checking if its clogged in any way (it didnt seem like it as we took and air chuck to it and seemed clear). The engine is really clean inside so im guessing someone rebuilt/cleaned it and im hoping a galley plug isnt missing. Thanks for your help! sorry if it doesnt make sense.
