1988 Jeep XJ 4.0 Knock Repair. Part 12. Pump Primed !!

The cordless drill on low range did a great job of spinning the oil pump in order to prime the engine !! Used a piece of rod with .160″ thick flat blade ground onto one end, that fit into the pump. As you can see the as the rocker arms filled up with oil, the air was purged from the engine oil galleries.

Had to get the stuck on oil filter off before the oil pump priming took place. Made an oil filter removal strap from a cheap 5/8″ deep socket and a piece of ratchet strap material. Cut a slot in the socket to allow the strap material to slide into it.
