It takes a lot of cranking to get pressure on the gauge. Crank it some more. This is a pretty good test of your battery too.

P.S. I haven't read the entire thread, so I apologize if this has been asked and answered. How important is it to actually see pressure on the gauge? Seems to me that cranking for 20-30 seconds is going to pump oil everywhere, albeit at low pressure. Now, if you start the car and don't instantly see pressure, shut it down.

^Yes

Keep priming it until you see pressure.
