Pull the dizzy out and use a looong 1/4" socket to turn the pump shaft with a speed brace until you have oil pressure.

old gas bottle, fill with water, weld in a air tyre valve. fill with oil, stick in a steel rod modified to fit the bottle and sealed, attach a pipe with a tap on it, charge it up, stick the pipe end into the oil switch hole, presto, pre-primed oil galleries!

Use a powerful drill with a reverse gear and an extension with suitable socket taped to it and when the oil exits the pushrods give it a few more seconds etc.
