    so i've got my freshly rebuilt engine and its got assembly grease on it, but when i crank it up, i want to make sure its protected until the oil gets pumped up, so is there a certain way i should do this or will it be alright just to crank it like it is

    uplug your spark plug wires.

    crank it.

    it obviously won't fire... but it will build some oil pressure.

    do like 2 secs prime, let off. repeat
    then plug the wires back on

    yeah on my first start up i did the same shit

    ...try to leave it on for 15-20 min on idle with out hitting the gas....so the rings set good...then drive it like a mo-fo; do 3-5 full throttle pulls and at the end of each pull let it go down the whole gear..(on a clear road with no cops) youll break it in right..change the oil/filter....then drive around for 300-500 mls regular and then you can switch to syn oil...if you want..

    .thats how i broke in 3 of my engines...dont do the 1000 mile slow break in..
