Manually priming oil system

Can the engine and oil system/pump be manuall primed without cranking the engine or no?

Been sitting 5 years without running so just curious before I crank it.

The only way it can be manually primed is to use a tank that has been designed for pressurizing oil systems and hooks into a oil galley plug. I would just crank it a couple of seconds at a time about six times then let it start.

Pull relays 1 & 2 so the motor doesn't start until you want it to.

Or pull fuse #22. Watch for the idiot gauge on the dash to respond.

Well thing was I though about the pressure tank as well as the quick bumps but not the other ideas. Only issue though with all but the tank is its still turnin on the dry bearings albeit not quick like if it's running but more than I want it to. I guess I just Gotta deal with it though.

The bearings won't be dry, they'll have old varnished up oil on them, unless somethings washed it away. My project truck sat in a farmyard for about 5-6 years and the bearings still had a healthy coating of oil on them when I tore the engine apart. Remove the PCM (22) fuse and crank in sort sessions until the dash gauge shows oil pressure

One thing I would suggest is to pop out the glow plugs and put a few squirts of oil into each cylinder. Cylinder walls would likely be dry.

Cool ill give all that a shot then, sorry for not posting back in a while been chasing other gremlins and getting the tanks cleaned and back up.

Anyway turns out no oil at all in the pan cause when wreaked the oil filter took damage and drained it all while it was still running, also took the bypass valve with it when it went as only part left was the spring.

Right now im working on getting a new filter housing and installing that chasing glow plugs that are melting BRAND F****** NEW valve cover gaskets and other issues.

I appreciate the advice though bill and same to the rest of the posters.

How do you test the glow plugs to see if they are out, i read that in the hanress plug theres obviously 5 pins and outer two are for the respective cylinday GP's and if one gets burnt the adjacent plug is out causing more draw and thus burning the wire on the other.

I just need to know how to test if the plugs are bad, and also while im there im gonna test the injectors which i gather should read right at 2.9 or 3.0 ohms resistance.

Also could one of you fellas be so kind as to take a pic of your glow plug relay so i can see the wires and their config, i changed my harness without paying attention to that and it was a while before i got the new one on from just being busy.
