just got to the point of turning my conversion over with the coils unplugged and the oil feed banjo cracked off to see if it lashed oil all over on turnover which would proove I have oil pressure, it didnt, not a drop, turned it over for a good 15-20 seconds.

Any ideas?

I dont fancy starting it not knwoing if I will get pressure.

Has the engine been sat for a while with no oil in whatsoever/dry oil filter? if so will take more than 20 secs to build oil pressure. Just done the shells on my mates bmw 328 and that took a good 40 - 50 secs of cranking to build oil pressure on a bone dry engine.

Isn't a worthwhile day in the garage if you don't!... PS kitty litter is pretty good at clearing it up if you didnt know...

my garage floor is painted with that plasticy paint stuff so it comes off pretty good. Its been hammered doing the conversion tho, needs doing again.
