New Long Block Installation ??????

Are there a specific set of procedures to follow when starting a new 7.3 long block and if so does anyone know what they are? I am new to diesels so any help is appreciated. Thank you.

one thing i can say is to prime the oil rails and the high pressure reservoir with oil by filling them with oil. it will help it start for the first time quicker.

That can be done through the HPOP right? How much oil is needed? The oil that is used to prime the oil rails and HPOP is that in addition to what is used to fill from empty or is that part of the almost 5 gallons it calls for?

iirc, half quart in the resevior, and almost a quart in each rail. but filling the res will not fill the rails automatically. youll have to crank or preload the rails via access port. i beleive if you overfill the res it will just drain to the crank case... can anyone verify this is correct?

That's what I understand, it just drains to the pan

Ok so I should fill the oil reservoir through the fill plug and fill the oil rails the the oil rail ports before attempting to crank this beast over?

It will fire quicker if you do. Probably run rough for little bit til it purges the air out of the system

So how much oil should I use in the reservoir? 3 qt or a 1/2 a qt.? Or should I just fill it up to 1" from the top and do the rails separately?
