There have been several posts regarding how to do this as it is a common problem where the oil pump drains it's oil back into the sump when sitting for long periods. It entails removing the large hex-head bolt retaining the relief plunger and spring at the top of the timing gear cover and just squirting oil with a squirt can into the oil galley until it fills to the top. Of course you need to remove the plunger and spring too and the squirt can must be inserted so the end reaches into the galley and not just into the area of the timing chain cover. An engine cut-away drawing in any of the manuals should illustrate how this is set up. Once the pump is primed and the relief valve back in place you should see oil pressure within a few seconds on starting.
