how long have you been cranking on it. Usually a dry oil system takes a few minutes of cranking after the oil pressure gauge jumps up. just remember to let your starter cool abot 2 or 3 minutes after about 30 seconds of cranking.

If you crank until the oil pressure gauge comes up and reads oil pressure then it's filling the hpop reservoir. I like to let the truck fill it's own because that way I know it's filtered oil and that I'm not going to induce any dirt into the high pressure oil system.

Do you have a scan tool that you can monitor the datastream with?
