How long cranking after replacing injectors

I just pulled all 4 injectors on the drivers side and replaced all the o - rings. I am told that I should crank the starter on and off without burning up the starter for 20 min. I have tried this several times but can not get enough oil pressure built up to start it. My question is - Is there an eaiser way to do this and is there any additional steps that i can do to speed this up. Thanks for the help in advance.
