  • Prime oil pump
  • What is the proper procedure for priming the oil pump after an engine rebuild on a 9n? Thanks!

  • Pack it w/ grease.

    If you didn't do that, remove the 15/16 hex nut to the right of the water pump. This is where your oil gallery is for the valves/lifters is. Don't lose the little spring under the nut. Use an oil squirt can to put about a cup of oil in here.
