in question is a Westerbeke
30; AKA British Leyland 4-91. It has been sitting about 2 years with an empty crankcase (long story...). I don't know it's current
mechanical condition and would like to attempt to start it.
In addition to filling the crankcase getting a bit of oil
into the cylinders...I would like to pressurize the oiling system in an effort to get oil
up to the bearings and everything else....as it would surely be multiple revolutions of the engine
before the oil pump would prime and start doing its job.
How can I accomplish this? I think I've seen adapter fittings that connect at the oil filter
mount...but I would appreciate some input
