prining oil pump 251 spitfire


Recommended Posts

Pulling the plugs and turning it over should work.

Pulling the distributor will not, because the gear stays in the motor on Chryslers, the distributor has a short shaft with a tang that fits into a slot. So you can't turn the pump from the distributor shaft.

Another good way is to use a pressure container of oil, connected to the oil gallery at the oil pressure gauge fitting. I have seen a garden sprayer used for this.

Not sure what you are trying to accomplish? Is this a newly rebuilt engine or one that has been out of commission?
