I think most landy engines that I have seen have the oil pump above the level of the sump so priming the pump provides the suction to draw the oil up to the pump and get it going. The Isuzu 4J series engine I have just reassembled has the pump in the bottom of the sump, below the oil level, so I don't think priming will be an issue for it. I have left the injectors out ATM and intend to run it on the starter to get oil distributed through the engine, before I attempt to start it for real.
