Default Hpdi oil lines????

Waiting on the last couple of things before I start my new powerhead on a 2001 hpdi 200 horse.

How the heck do I get oil into the last few lines?? I pumped a bunch of oil into the lines by unhooking them at the oil pump and have a bunch of oil through most of the lines. But, have a couple of lines that just don't seem to want to take oil. What the heck am I doing wrong???

Thanks for any insight!

If they have check valves like the non hpdi 2 strokes try removing the check valves then bleed up to where you removed the valve. Reinstall the check valve and you should be able to bleed the rest of the way to the end of the hose. I think they can get air locks behind the check valves. Roll the engine over without starting it to prime the lines.

Should I be able to pull oil with a vacuum tool or I have to rely on the pump?

Thanks again

I'm an idiot guys!!! After much cussing and extra work, the lines I couldn't get oil to are vacuum lines!!! Have a good laugh at my expense 😂.
