Hey Gnarls, I would agree about it being unnessacary, I just wanted to to make sure it was clean oil and a clean filter. But the oil will only be in there for 400 miles before I switch to a dino oil. So the filter will work just fine.
It sounds like I don't need to do any priming if It already has assembly lube. I will pull the pump off before I turn it over and put some more in. Assembly lube coupled with forcing oil into the channels will be enough.
I am going to ensure there is no plugs in and that the coil wire and fuel line are disconnected. That way there is no fuel washing of the cylinders.
