66 gto oil priming issues

My dads friend has a 66 gto with a 350 block a 389 crank bored 60 over with tri power and stage 3 cams. They put the motor in and went to prime the oil pump with a drill but it spins (freely) there is almost no resistance. When we turn it counter clockwise no oil gets to the heads. I was wondering if anyone had any information or an idea of what could be wrong.

No oil in the pan? No pick-up screen? Pump not tight to the block?
I allways prime the oil pump before bolting to the block.
