New to the forum, just bought a PV544

Hello all. I picked up a 1963 PV544 to restore last week. The car was the previous owner's parts car, so I have a bit of work to do. Most of it is there, what was taken didn't come from the engine, and what went was mostly replaced by parts from the other car (though not installed). It has the B18 and the 4 speed. It was a daily driver up until it's owner at the time died, at which point it sat for several years. It then became the parts car for a new owner, who never tried to start it. Between the last time it was driven and when I picked it up some ten years had passed. My hope is that it will fire up and be in good enough shape as is to have a driveable project that I can work on little by little. I am eager to get the engine running so I can see what I have. The engine has to be bone dry, and I want to prime it with oil. Does anyone know where I can find a tool to drive the oil pump for these engines? Any guidance would be very appreciated. Here's the car:
