Default Re: Engine top end rebuild and an engine stand

I'd guess builders all have diff standards for this - I like to oil all bearings with a few drops and wipe cylinder wall with an oil-wet finger - not sure what if any diff it makes other than to make me feel comfortable with it.

Thinking lately about hard first starts makes me wonder if porous cases are stealing quite a bit of fuel at first until they are well soaked enough to start more easily - I might start oiling the inside walls a bit on new motors.
Sometimes I sets and thinks, sometimes I jes sets.
