oil pump primed?cold start-rebuilt engine/No third gear
Any input on how to prime oil pump or lube engine before cold start of rebuilt engine ? We are nervous about cranking it over - we bathed parts in oil when re-assembling bottom and top end, but I'm worried about the oil pump being completely dry - I don't understand this set up or how to prime it.
Update: We ended up splitting the cases to replace a shifter fork and shifter drum ( it turned out that the drum had a small burr/damage on it that jammed and prevented one of the shifter forks from sliding which explained why it would not change gears - although we replaced the tranny parts, all we had to do was file away the small burr on the drum and even the old parts were ok.
Anyway,- the bike is rebuilt and we are getting ready to cold start the engine?
Any feedback or input would be appreciated.
