OK I just got finished reinstalling a 7.3 i rebuilt. for my 97' f250 powerstroke (new block, new rings, new pistons, all gaskets) it cranks over perfectly and would even fire with a short shot of ether (i know, I know) there is plenty of fuel in the bowl and fuel comes out of the little valve on the drivers side near the FPR when I push the core in. I pulled my oil line going to the passenger side head and there was no oil in the line, the HPOP res is full and the dip stick reads full. I put a new CPS in and the Tach didnt move before and it still doesnt move. the speedo needle bounces up and down though (slightly) another thing is that it doesnt register any oil pressure at the guage.
oh and one more thing... when I took the old motor ouot the hpop has a rod sticking out of the back with some sort of armature looking thing, well I found the sheetmetal nut and bushing thingy in the valey beneath it. what is this and is there a picture that someone could provide to show me how it is assembled.
