Funny because I couldn't find where the last plug in the plug kit went from HH and figured it was a spare. Installed that. It was fun. Didn't remove anything but the distributor and intermediate shaft for the oil pump and managed to tighten that thing down.

little oil pressure with it out, but a common trick is to drill a .050 hole in it to lube the cam/dizzy gears.

Yes, it's a straight shot from the sending unit hole out the bottom if main cap is off. The HH Block goes in where the anti drain back check ball you removed was. where did you pit the 'plunger" you mentioned. The oil should have a straight shot at the sending unit when it goes back in the block from the filter.

The rocker shafts should have been disassembled and cleaned during the rebuild, if not sludge & dried up oil could be clogging things up. oil to shafts come up one stand, if assembled out of order, or acam bearing that supplys the oil was installed wrong you'd get no oil to that bank. Hopefully it was well lubed before start up.
