You may need to prime your oil system. Remove the 15/16 hex nut to the right of the water pump ("D" in photo below). This is where your oil gallery is for the engine's valves/lifters. Be careful to not lose the little spring under the nut. Use an oil squirt can to put about a cup of oil in here. Replace the spring & nut.
