If you haven't cleaned and dropped the pan it needs to be done or flush out with kerosene (not running)
Partial or no oil filter motors accumulate sludge in the pan, and can block up the inlet or plug up the pump or channels. When it starts things get stirred up and whammo, not enough flow.
Change the oil again after 500 miles or so after it's cleaned out fter you get it clean down under.
My mantra is to get each system: fuel, electrical, lube, vacuum, etc working as it should before attempting to start these old cars, that way there's no playing hundred questions what could be wrong or causing harm.
