At the end of last season I installed a new SBT motor.
Bench testing the oil pump was done and is operational.
I opened up the bleeder on the oil pump hoping to gravity bleed any air out. I checked it periodically for quite a few days to see any oil coming through but did not notice any large amount of oil in the hull. I will be mixing oil with my fuel for the initial run but what else could I do to ensure that the oil pump is actually pumping oil?
 
The bleed screw only bleeds the line from the tank or the pump. It should flow oil within a few seconds. If it doesn’t your filter is plugged.
