Re: New 315/325 hemi rebuild


Rotating the engine while driving the pump is a good idea.
Again, I am not familiar with Dodge, But on a Chrysler the oil path to the top is thru the camshaft, so oil only gets thru when the hole in the cam lines up with the passage to the top.
So the top doesn't get oil very often, and its hard to tell just when it does.

Jack, yes I know exactly where in the rotation the camshaft is lined up for each bank to get oil. I'd planned to put the crankshaft at that point for each bank during oil pump spinning to make sure everything, meaning the whole valve train, gets well lubed. Don't remember off hand where those points are but I made sure and found them and wrote them down during assembly. Thanks for your suggestions.
