OK.  Back to bizznezz.

 
Major MAJOR snag today.
Buttoned everything up, dumped 5 qts. of Rotella into the pan and went to prelubve it.....
 
NOTHING! 
 
Spun the oil pump on a drill (CCW) and I could hear gurgling from under the valley pan but no oil to the attic!!!!  The rockers are staying bone dry.  WTF do I do next?

Sometimes the pumps don't take a prime when they are dry. Try putting some heavy gear oil or even vaseline(!) in the pump rotors and try it again.

Rotate the crank, just a bit, at the same time you are spinning the drill as the holes in the camshaft bearings have to align with the oiling holes in the camshaft then you will see oil start to move in the rocker arms and start comming down.You should feel it in the drill as it will start to bog down when it starts building pressure! We had a heck of a time priming my buddy's 440!
Also,do you have the rocker shafts on correct? there is only one way to install them,otherwise it will not feed oil to the top end correctly! You could try and pressurize without the shafts on,if the above does not work,just to see if it is feeding oil up to thet point.

You did use an assembly lube right?  STP works well.
 
The cam bearing holes match up with the holes in the block right?  They can be a bear sometimes.
 
How far is the oil getting?  Is it getting to the cam?  Can you see any oil moving around down on the crank when looking down?  Or are you closed up?  Scratch one valley pan.
 
You are using the right head gaskets. . . .  I know you said these are Mo Home heads

Are you feeling a drag on the drill? If so the pump is priming, likely all that's happening is the holes in the #4 cam journal are not lined up with the holes in the block to oil the top end. Turn the engine over slowly while priming and the top end should start getting wet.

You ain't kidding!!!!  Talk about overkill.
I guess the 100A alternators needed some HD mounting.
And when the A/C compressor is mounted... Holy $%#@

What do you expect!  You practically need an engine hoist to lift that alternator. .  .
