    unable to bleed oil lines on 96xp

    i'm in the middle of reinstalling my sbt motor in my 96 xp. the bleed bolt sheared off the oil pump when i was going to bleed the lines. this is a new engine so i'll be basically premixing for the first tank anyway along with the oil injection so my thoughts are that any air in the lines will be pushed out. i though about during the first idle minutes holding open the oil pump lever as well.

    any thoughts, will i be ok without bleeding. any tricks. thanks.

    I've never "bled" any of mine. I have always just held the pump wide open with the ski at idle for a minute or so while premixing.
    You should be fine as long as the pump itself isn't damaged.
