priming an EVO oil pump

After cleaning and inspecting an EVO oil pump how do you prime it? On automotive engines I pack the pump cavity with heavy grease.Should that be done on an EVO pump?The manual doesn't say anything about priming.

just keep priming with oil.
No grease
Start and check pressure if none stop motor prime again with oil. repeat untill you build pressure.

Remove both screw caps and remove the check ball and slide. Then pour oil in both. Continue to pour oil in until it will not take any more or you decide that it has to be more than enough. Replace ball, slide, springs and caps.

>>...remove the check ball...<<

Is there any chance of magnetizing the check ball if you use a pencil magnet to pull it out?

A basic magnet like the kind on the end of an antenna for retrieving parts should be fine to use. Use the least powerful magnet you can and it should not effect the check ball enough to worry about. If you use a magnet that can pick up a car, I would replace the check ball just to be safe.

Thanks for the info.There are other methods besides a magnet to get that ball out such as my mytvac or a dab of grease on a piece of tubing.But I wouldn't think a weak magnet would hurt.Now I know how to prime an EVO oil pump.
