Engine Mechanical problem
2005 Chevy Silverado V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 86000 miles
Installed a new cam in the motor, after initial startup there was no oil pressure registered on the gauge. We replaced the oil pump with a brand new Melling unit. Reassembled engine and tried again, this time disabled the starting system and just cranked it. No pressure registered on the guage. Pulled valve covers to verify and there is no oil pumping up pushrods. I am stumped, has anybody got any ideas? Do you prime the pump, if how? Any resoponse will be appreciated.
have the same problem?
