    Prime oil lines

    Just finished rebuilding carbs, while I did this I also removed the oil lines from the pump to clean them out, question is, would I need to prime these, and how would I go about priming these lines? I did not remove the lines from the tank to the pump.

    Nah, you'll be fine.
    If it makes you feel better you could also do a shot of fogging oil or 2 stroke oil down the carb throats before you start it. You could also hold the oil pump lever wide open when you start it to get the oil flowing too..
    Just don't rev the crap out of it for the first few seconds after it starts.

    remove spark plugs, hold throttle wide open, crank for 5 sec. at a time, if you put new clear line you can see the oil pulseing throught about a drop a sec. at WOT
