Oil/Fuel line priming...
I'm planning on replacing all of my fuel/oil lines when I install my new carbs,(and check the oil pump adjustment...as long as they're out) as they look to be old, and are starting to discolor pretty badly. I assume the fuel lines will pretty much prime themselves with full choke on, and a few pulls of the cord.
My concern is with priming the oil lines. Will they also prime themselves, or is there a procedure for this?
Here is what I was thinking: I would ride the tank down to about 2 gallons...premix the fuel @50:1...change everything...then start and go...assuming the oil will eventually prime itself. I realize it will smoke like the dickens once there is both premix, and injection working...and may have to clean the plugs...but at least I KNOW there will be oil at the cylinders. Am I wayyyy off base with this?
