I took apart the oil pump on my sled and made sure every mechanical piece works and stuck it back on, hooked all the lines up and pulled the cord a few times, should oil fill up the lines when the engine is off? The shaft still turns when the engine isn't running but no oil flowed through the lines.

You have to bleed the air out of the line to the pump. At idle, the pump barely moves any oil. For safety, mix a tank full of gas at at least 75:1 till the pump starts moving the oil.

My oil pump had never been taken off since 91 and it looked fine when i opened it up, there was no debris or shavings in there but I'm not sure what the proper protocol is.

Really? Every piece was made of metal and the only thing I could think of replacing would be the little gasket that is in between the pump and engine which in my case wasn't damaged.
