I have no oil coming out of the top of the block where the oil pressure gage hose hooks up. The car seems to be running right other wise and I drove the car for 20 mins before realising the problem. I put a new pump in and I have hooked up a oil pressure gauge to to the block above the oil filter and still got no reading from the gage or any oil coming out of the top where the hose hooks up for the gage I don't no what to think? Any ideas? Shouldn't my motor already be sized?

You sure the pick tube is in place-if its not connected you won't have oil pressure, the pump is sucking air instead of oil. Check it, drop the pan and investigate could also be the oil pump drive gear that meets up with the distributor gear-
