    pjays huletun - Use your Haynes manual and verify that you are getting proper pressure when the key is turned to ON position (use Chapter 4).
    You may only be getting the initial prime from the pump and then its shutting off. This is usually caused by the oil pressure sending unit. If proper oil pressure is not reached during the first few seconds of cranking the oil pressure sending unit does not complete the ground circuit to the pump shutting it off to protect the engine. The pressure may be fine, but a bad sending unit will cause the no start.
