Changed the pump and still no oil flow  :deskbang: so I tore the valve covers intake timing cover oil pan off and as far as I could c everything looked good pulled the cam looks clean come to find out the 3 little plugs that are just above the cam were missing now they are replaced ill have the engine back together tonight and the get to finsh up sliders will try to post pics of it soon.  :violent: :violent:

It's probably best to build it to fit the rig and then you know its done right. What material are you going to use for the cage?
