Chevy 454 is it normal for no oil to come out the push rod tubes when priming the oil pump?

Setting valves on 350 with hydralic lifters and roller rockers?

Chevy 350 small block engines with hydralic lifters set at 0 lash. That means start the engine and adjust the valve until it just quits clicking. Then tighten the nut approx 3/4-1 turn then set the next one.

Why does lifters rap when you first start your 97 lumina ls but clears up until next morning when starting again?

While the engine is turned off the oil will drain from the top of the engine. The Lumina has hydraulic lifters and uses oil to move them. The lifters will "tap" until the oil builds up enough to hold them up. Make sure that the engine has enough oil, that the oil pressure is ok, and that the oil does not need changing. If these are ok then an additive may be added to aid in quieting noisy lifters.

I had a Chevy blazer with the same problem. It had spark, fuel pressure, good battery & good starter. I sprayed some carburetor quick start spray & it started. They blazers have a problem with the fuel injection.

Put in new cam and lifters now your truck will not start?
