actually, the oil in the oil cooler res will drain when the pump is removed, since the pump is all that keeps it from draining.
op, you had both rails drained, the oil from inside the pump drained, and the oil cooler res drained. there is going to be a lot of cranking to purge all that air.
how many cranking cycles have you gone trough, and how long per cycle?
as mentioned, you can remove the small cap screws on the rails and crank to purge the air. this would also tell you if you were at least getting oil through the hpo side. though that would mean removing te valve covers again.
the richest ones are not those who have the most, but those who need the least
