Oil presure Dry Sump

Should I be able to see oil pressure when only on the starter motor?

Car not started in 31 years…

Dry Sump Turbo -81

Can't answer that Stefan but will say there are more important concerns if starting for the 1st time in 31 years, as you probably know. Both timing belt and dry sump drive belt would top of my list to replace before doing much with that motor. Let us know what you find please.

Cheers

thanks for your concern 🙏🏻
everything is changed, I was just going to check the ignition and it was okay. But a few seconds on the starter did not give an effect on the oil guage.

Remove the plugs, fully open the throttles & it'll take at least 30 seconds to register pressure on the gauge as it first has to fill the oil filter  :thumbup:
