94 oil pressure

hi im new to this!

working on 94 defender oil pump
came in with engine noise and oil light on, tried primeing the pump but no luck so i started taking the oil filter housing apart to look and see whats going on , just broke one of the bolts on the oil filter housing.
is 1994 defender same as 1995?
looks like i have to remove the front cover and try fixing that bolt or replace it, is this possible?

The way to prime the system is to remove the distributor and use a drill to spin the distributor drive gear. The starter usually doesn't spin the engine fast enough to prime the system even if the oil pump gears are packed with vaseline. Welcome to working on rover V8's/1962 technology.

Is that just remove the cap and rotor and attach the drill (somehow) to the rotor location or pull the whole distributor out and go from there?

remove the distributor. Its held in by a single nut and clamp.

Mark it first accurately or you'll need a timing light to position it properly.
