No, you should prime it. Unless you rev it up you wont have enough suction to pull oil into the pump but youll be revving is so long and so high youll likely cause bearing damage. With that said, you dont need any special tools. You need to make sure you installed a new driveshaft with the retainer facing upward towards the distributor FYI. All you need is a drill, the correct 1/4 drive socket that fits over the drive shaft and enough extensions to reach the drive shaft. I always use electrical tape to wrap the socket and the extension so there is no chance of the socket falling off . You turn the shaft the same direction that the distributor turns which is counter clockwise.Hello everyone, the other day I was driving my 1991 GT and i noticed loss in oil pressure and heard lots of valve lash from the lack of oil in the lifters, so today in an empty parking lot where got it towed to with almost no tools i dropped the steering rack, the oil pan and the oil pump without taking out or jacking up the motor. I took out the old oil pump and it was locked and the shaft was twisted until it snapped. I finished the job and put everything back together and I don’t have the right equipment to prime the oil pump can i just start the motor to prime it??
