Ok so after a few months of upgrading the turbo, had new manifold, top mount holset hx32, custom oil feed line, return and exhaust. bla bla all the required parts, primes the turbo with new oil, removed spark and cranked engine over. No oil what so ever came out of the oil feed line, tried cranking about 4 times. Still nothing. Removed oil feed like completely from the block to check for any possible blockages and kinks. The line is good. So I left the line off the block and cranked a couple times and not even a drop of oil cane out the side of the block ! It’s been sitting in my drive and last time it was started was July, could the oil pump be seized? checked the dipstick the oil still looked quite clean (still gold tbh) and no sludge. Should I take the sump off and inspect the pickup tube ? Need advice please

Do you not have an oil pressure gauge fitted? and if not does the oil light go out when cranked? i would crank (without starting) for at least 15-30 seconds to determine if there is oil flow/pressure.
