Do you have the valve covers off? If not it's ok for now. Make sure all your high pressure oil stuff is intact, like you have the oil rails on, the IPR back in, and the standpipes installed. You can leave the HPOP cover off. There is an allen head plug in the top of the HPOP. This is a pressure test port. Take that plug out. You will need to put pressurized air in here, preferably 100+ psi. You can either try and track down a fitting the will screw in there, or use a rubber tipped air blower to put pressure on it. I would recommend trying to find a fitting but it's sort of a goofy thread, so the rubber tipped blower will work. You will have to be carefull though because if you lose the seal it will blow oil all over.
Before you put pressure in the system you will have to rig up jumper wires to the IPR. One hot and one ground, doesn't matter which terminal is which. Also don't leave voltage on the IPR for more then a minute or you can damage the IPR. With the IPR jumped put pressure into the high pressure oil system. Listen for anything leaking, there should be no leaks! If air leaks out the backside of the HPOP then the IPR is not working and is letting all the oil drain back without building pressure.
With all that cranking you did the oil rails should have been full of oil. Seeing as you didn't have much I don't think you're building high pressure oil pressure.
