Lol, I was wondering why you didn't just use a drill?  Only thing I could think of was maybe the pump shaft would slip inside the drill and drop some metal shavings down into the engine :banghead:  Doh that was me once upon a time ;)

Actually Charles your correct  we would normally use a drill and a "pre oiler tool" I was just screwing around at the end of the day ,I was amazed however at nearly 80 psi cold (15/ 40 rotella oil) and my "hand turning" with a speed wrench (standard pressure and volume pump) Tom

Dizzy in the wrong end?? now Steve  ;)
