    Prime OIL SYSTEM AFTER REBUILD

    Just got my 2007 RXT Stage 2 engine back together and re-installed in the ski tonight

    What's the procedure for priming the engine with oil before I start it up for the 1st time ?

    I'm thinking of removing the oil sending unit and pumping oil into there

    I have a set-up to where I can connect an oil line from a portable tank with about 40 psi to force the oil in

    Any other suggestions ??

    If assembly lube is on the journals.. Put 4 liters of oil in it, flood crank it for 10 seconds x 4 times with no spark plugs installed.. Then start her up.

    Oil pressure sensor port is a good location for priming. Another location is at rear of the cylinder head below the large coolant hose.

    I take the filter out and crank it in drown mode until oil starts coming up, only takes a few seconds.

    Your assembly lube is what gets it through the first few seconds.
