    I doubt it makes any difference - after 20 years mine runs just fine like my 2-20 year old motorcycles and even older cars and tractors...

    oil threads are the best!
    If you have a dizzy, remove it and use a priming shaft on a battery drill, spins the pump and primes the system without turning anything but the oil pump

      Well you're just spitting garbage because that's not the way we've always done it....... haha

      Great post and I like where your heads at. I use Blackstone as well and will continue to do so. They tell me quite often that my junk WalMart oil is doing just fine......

        Also the best way to prime on a freshly rebuilt motor.

          but does it prime the mating surfaces before it starts up??? or is it a dry start??

            Problem is lots of folks here will lose their distributor clock by a tooth and then that will be a whole thing.

            If you are obsessed the tool you want is;

            You fill the tank with oil, pressurize it with your air compressor or a hand pump and then thread it into your block into any oil chamber that has a threaded fitting - in practicality there is usually a bung near the oil filter or you pull the oil pressure sender and thread it in.


            Kinda overkill. You could also literally make a length of air hose, adapt the thread to fit the engine oil pressure sender hose. use a small funnel to pour oil in there and then pump it with a bike pump to push it around.

              Maybe, but you only do it once!



              If you're truly worried about it, as a fit an forget option, then you could add an Accusump, saves the oil pressure and releases it when you turn the ignition on to pre-lube the engine and also stops any oil pressure loss from surge when turning sharply (given the way you can chuck a Prostar around I'm surprised it isn't more of an issue)
