  No check valves in the crank that I know of.  Only things close to 
that are oil squirters, which that probably doesn't have and the 
check valve/flap in the oil filter.  If it's not the oil filter then my first 

thought is you have a worn oil pump.  If most of the oil drains out 
of the block while sitting then it doesn't have enough voume (due to 
internal leakage past the gears, etc) to fill it all back up unless sped upl
