The hand cranking is turning the bearing dry ,  unless lubed at assembly . Pressurizing the system without any movement is what you want . This will lube all and get system primed full . There our some threads on setting up the reliefs . I forget adjustments and how parts arrange . BOI says clockwise to increase pressure , pushes spring harder to valve taking more  pressure to overcome and relieve oil down drain tube .
  Are you going with synthetic oil ?

Chet may want to test your pressure relief valve before running . If it is froze up preventing or limiting oil going to channels could be major trouble . Not sure how to do it. would need to push flow of oil thought tube off of pump at least 50 psi ,I guess . Then adjust to 40 psi after relief to start with . Going to be PIA; but .

Sorry to hear Chet . They should be able to remove plugs to access drilled channels if needed . Assume assembly lube was used . But you can pressurize system with a couple cartridges of oil from a manual suction / pump . A cheap effective way to get engine lubed without cranking . Did my , years sitting ,  truck this way before even turning it by hand . Was able to see pressure gage on dash move up with just this hand force . Found this info on AACA forum .

I keep mine adjusted to a little charging maybe 3 to 5 with driving lights on . Why risk boiling the battery . Also gage accuracy on 85 yo unit come in to play . I think 12 to 15 was out put of gens DR943's . My only draw back is with headlights on it go negative . But in my state can not drive after dark anyway .

Lock handles in twenties and thirties where on passenger side, was a safety regulation . Did not want some one opening a door  in to a horse or something . My door has separate level to lock it and is only on driver side ,so key must be on pass. side to lock it .
