hi, i'm new here, username spugor. I have an 04 impala with a 3.4l v6, or gm 3400 if you prefer. i recently rebuilt my engine due to rod knock, caused by low oil, stupid of me but too late now. so replaced crankshaft with used one with low miles and verified clearances, biggest one was .003, and yes i had the rotating assembly balanced. so i put every thing together and i'm getting zero oil pressure, i've tried everything and yes i packed the oil pump with assembly lube. cranked it with ignition disconnected for 10 seconds many times and cant get anything on the mechanical guage i connected. i even rigged up a pump to push oil in through the sender hole but it doesn't seem to flow in once the air in the line gets compressed. im tempted to pull the pump and repack it with grease but since it didn't work before i just dont know. any suggestions as to where i go from here?
