Check the rubber hoses that go from the frame tank to the engine, I have read that can get kinked and blocked off...

Also, if you haven't removed/cleaned the fitting and screen from the bottom of the frame oil tank, it might be worth doing...

There's a vent pipe that goes from the rocker/valve cover to the frame oil tank, I removed that from the rocker cover and put a little air pressure on it to pressurize the oil tank and force the oil through... With a small amount of air pressure, the engine only needed cranking over a few times before the oil is coming out the banjo fitting on the head...

Good luck :)
