1986 944 Turbo Oil pressure


Vehicle Information: Year: 1986; Engine (type, size, modifications): 2.5; Total Mileage: 97,000;

I have rebuilt the engine, installed it in the car and am in the engine startup phase of the project. The oil pump does not produce any pressure. I have checked the pump drive gear/crankshaft bolt torque. The torque is correct and the gear is rotating. The pump was not replaced, but good when removed. Is it necessary to prime the pump after a rebuild? If so what is the procedure for this?Sender isn't suspect since there is no oil at the sender port.Any ideas and/or other items to check?
