has oil pressure but no oil on top end.

I am having a problem getting oil to come to the rockers. I am getting 60lbs of oil pressure in the bottom end but can't seem to get oil to the top end. I started my car about 5 tomes for 20 seconds a piece. Any idea what could be wrong. I have 1.6 roller rockers ls7 lifter and stock rods. I cleaned them out. It's a 350 tpi. Thanks.

Re: has oil pressure but no oil on top end.

You have to run it longer than that to get oil up there.
