How to best prime a 4.6 oil system?

I'm done with my 4.6 rebuild and it's back in the truck. minor stuff left but; before I turn it on- I need to know what to do about gettin oil up in there. I think I read somewhere that "pushing" into a sending unit port would get er done but -- I don't know...
Not even sure where the damned oil pressure sending unit is at this point and I'd need to get a pump and then kluge up some plumbing. I sure don't wanna f it up after all my hard work.
Any thoughts?

You can pull the fuel pump relay and just spin the truck over without cranking it for a bit. Also fill up the oil filter. Should be fine as long as parts were not bone dry assembled.
