Low oil pressure warning.

After doing some major repairs on my high pressure oil system (see here Another no start (2005) I now have nothing registering on my oil pressure gauge. It was fine for a couple days, but now it won't come up. I pulled the oil filter to check if the housing was filling up during cranking and it does. From what I understand, by holding down the plunger, the housing should not drain. It won't stay full though. Am I correct in my understanding of this? If so, then it makes sense as all my oil pressure is simply being pushed through the drain valve. If not, any other suggestions?
