engine storage
« on: January 29, 2009, 12:30:07 PM »
It has been a couple of months since my motor was rebuilt and during this time there hasn't been any oil in it. Will this create a problem when the motor is eventually installed? Should I doing anything special in the interim?

I suppose the safest thing to do is to check with the guy that put it all together.
I would expect that he used an "engine assembly lube" of some kind.  The stuff I use is just a very thick oil that goes on all surface of all the bearings, rings, etc.  It's purpose is to provide lubrication when first fired up.
