    Question Start-up pre-lub

    I need to pre-lub an engine(LS1) that's been sitting a long time. What's the best way to get access? In the old days, you just turned the pump thru the distributor hole. I'm just learning these new engines.

    In the olden daze we used to pull the plugs and squirt a teaspoon of 10 or 20 weight oil into each cylinder, then manually turn over the engine S L O W L Y (battery disconnected) with a breaker bar or long handled ratchet on the crankshaft pulley (where the timing marks are) about 5 - 10 revolutions. This would make sure that the rings weren't stuck and the cylinder walls got some oil on them. Plugs back in, then prime the oil system / top end by driving the oil pump with an electric drill through the distributor hole. Don't know much about these newfangled engines with cats & coilpacks for each cylinder - there's no distributor anymore that I know about?

    I plan to pull the oil pressure sending unit and pump oil in. I'm just looking for some kind of small pump to use. Thanks for the helpful answers.
