I did it on mine. I'm in the refrigeration business so I utilized a refrigerant oil pump. It's a hand plunger pump similar in appearance to a bicycle pump. Just connected to the feed line to the bearings.
I think it's a good idea. A lot depends too on what you used for an assembly lubricant when putting the engine together.
