The Haynes says to just fire up the rebuilt engine, but I don't like that idea.
Is it clockwise or counter clockwise to prime a 2.5L oil pump?

I'd hate to ruin a new pump.

Thank you
:doh:

Hit it with the valve cover off. After about a full minute, if you don't see oil, go the other way. My guess would be clockwise, as that is the direction of most firing orders.

I was thinking that as well, but it's always good to get a second opinion.
Only thing left is the distributor, valve cover, spark plugs and dropping the little beast back in. I will have my Jeep again and as soon as tomorrow morning.

can't you use a drill with a "rod" on the end of it to prime it?

It's more like a large flat screwdriver end that is needed unlike the traditional ones which are more of a round or octagon shape. I have the perfect broken long screw driver that works great for this.
I'm making sure the distributor is in there just right. What a pain getting that bolt out for the hold down.
