I guess if the motor is still out of the car :

1. turn it over -remove the oil pan and re-'prime'

the pump

2. or hook up a battery to the starter motor, remove the spark plugs,

and crank it over till you see oil up at the cam and rockers

you can do 2. in or out of the car.

TIP : ALWAYS fill your oil filter with fresh oil before screwing it back on,

even during yer regular oil changes

Rig up a way to feed oil down through the oil sensor location at the top of the head. This will trickle oil down to the oil pump and give you enough to make the pump work with the starter.

but only if the filter doesn't have a 1- way valve in it...

There's a discussion about getting a pump to prime a few days back

that has some good musings.
