You can test it somewhat before putting everything back together by turning the rear wheel in 5/6 gear with plugs removed. You should see oil coming up through the lifters...

Thanks for all the responses people. I was away tearing the scoot back down. All nighter Wednesday thru Thursday evening.

Prodrag1320, just to see if its moving oil. Just assembled the 95" conversion, new cams and plate etc, lot of work to only have to tear it back apart because the pump moves no oil.

BAGERDSM, lifters only clacked for a short bit. She started with oil pressure but it fell off to zero as I rode down the street. Was close to home.

KumaRide, I did just that. I turned the rear wheel over and oil shot across the room from the port in the cam plate where the tensioner mounts. Also had oil coming from crank bushing etc... it appeared top be moving oil, of coarse that was after I added a wave washer that we found missing from the original pump. ( Harley Tech spotted that for me)

Will dump oil in her tonight and see what I have now.
