Found out in the Shop Manual that it can take up to 30 second for the light to go out.

That feels like very nervous half minute on a rebuild engine :-/

If the 472 has the oil pump shaft that is driven by the distributor... pull the distributor and use a socket and an extension to drive the oil pump shaft till the light goes off... and for a few seconds afterward.

That will put oil to all of the internal friction surfaces of the engine.

Great idea, have now been out in the garage and rebuilt an old distributor for this purpose :-)
