Either borrow an AAmco1750 tool .  Or make your own like this one I did . There are pics of other homemade ones . Do adjustments as instruction describe with a feeler gage to give clearances to get your centering  / major adjustment .

The bolt is a cap on mine .  You take bolt out and bleed as normal or put on nipple with tube to keep area dryer . Should have any autozone type place .  Bleeder them self also on ebay . When had mine sleeved they where nice enough to replace rounded off bleeder with nice original patina ones . Part of tool kit was bleeder rubber tube and nipple check BOI .

Yes !  That's how it is done , good . .. Mine says oil max 45 in salesman manual in prior post and 40 in BOI.  So went between as mine was high also . Remember oil visc . will affect . Was just about to down load same info from my book .

Yeah Guys this is same engine set up as my truck . Mechanical fuel pump , brass bowl DRT carb , separate generator and starter , mechanical timing advance and non pressurized cooling with water pump . 
  You need to adjust your pressure down and first up oil to 30 weight's , my book calls for 40's in summer . I used 10w-40 in diesel grade . Lots of forum discussion on oils and weights . Refer to Chet's engine thread for copied info from my manual BOI . This has how to adjust pressure and test running pressure of oil system .

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 .
