I have a question on my RRC. Its a 92 v8 3.9 and unfortunately it has had to sit for about a year in a garage due to me starting to work on it and then other life events happening preventing me from putting it back together. Anyways I'm trying to get it back up and going so I can finish it up but for some reason I'm not getting any oil to the top end of the engine and I'm not sure why.
I have tried packing the pump with Vaseline,
I have taken the top oil cooler line off and put a vacuum to it,
I have taken the distributor off and made a tool to spin the pump with a drill,
I have poured oil down the cooler pipes,
I have replaced the pump and gears with ones from a parts car,
and I have taken the oil pan off and cleaned the pick up tube and put a new gasket on both the tube and pump.
Everything I try doesn't work and I still cant get it to pump oil, even with the cooler line undone i dont get any oil out of it.
Any help or suggestions would be awesome,
