won't hurt to prime it. I'd suggest vasoline over lithium grease though- vasoline will dissolve / disperse in the oil more quickly than Li grease.

You could also leave the coil wire off and crank the engine over til you have oil pressure.

oil filter is either in the trash, in the box from the auto parts store...
... or is on the side of the block below the intake manifold.

and considering you said you "used vasaline"... I'm guessing it didn't help because if it did you'd still use it.

I use Lucas oil additive to prime my Toyota oil pumps.

As long as it is not dry at start up . To me it is not really what I would call priming like the Ford and Chevy units that are sealed but it serves the same purpose
