Prime engine before heat cycle?
i've rebuilt a few car engines and one of the things we would sometimes do prior to the first start up on a rebuilt motor was to pull the plugs, put a brick on the gas pedal (which would cut the fuel pump off, then turn the starter until oil pressure built up.
is there a way to do this with a fuel injected twin cam TBW? is it even worth it? i wouldn't do something like this unless i could shut the fuel off; wouldn't want the gas to wash off the oil on the rings.
this is on a full top and bottom rebuild so the entire engine is dry from the back to the front (other than assembly lube).
