Default Dry rod bearings

Recently ran a flathead v8 that I was told had been overhauled but never ran in over 20 years. On first run the engine overheated with smoke coming out the breather. Disassembled engine, removed the plugs from front and rear of oil passage and founds blockage in that line.......The rod bearing were dry. Cleaned out, put in new rod bearings and seems like the same problem......no oil getting to rod bearings. The engine is a 1941. The block is going to be vatted and cleaned prior to next build. Any ideas on why oil is not getting to the rod bearings??
