    Tips for starting a rebuilt motor?

    Got my ski back together with a new crank. Is there any need to put some oil in the cylinders or anything like that to lubricate until the oil starts running through it again?

    If you put oil on the pistons when you assembled the motor it should be fine. If not put a little 2 stroke oil in it.

    Use a baster (large syringe) and inject oil in the 2 holes by each bearing (crankcase). Then I fill a cup with 2 stroke oil and drop the rod bearings in there for a bit, assemble pistons, then stick my fingers in the cup and lube the walls before dropping the cyls on.

    This might sound obvious, but make sure the fuel lines are primed well.

    exactly as WFO said. Lube all thsoe points he mentioned.
    I use a kids medicine syringe...same principal.

    and as Kirk said, use a boat "primer bulb" and pack those carbs prior to starting.

    I drop all my parts in a 'clean' wash bucket and put about a quart of YAMALUBE in it.Use YAMALUBE to break your motor in! As WFO stated........use a baster to lube the crank bearings.You will see the little port holes in the case to put the oil through.I run mine on a hose for 10 minutes.Start motor,THEN turn the hose on,after 10 minutes,i will then shut the hose off THEN shut the motor down.
