Default How to use after run oil??

Has anyone tried to put ARO through the fuel inlet valve?
Isn't it better to put some oil in a seperated fuel tube( a small one) and plug it in the valve and turn the engine on the starter box.
It's simple...you don't have to remove the glow plug which might get dirt in the engine and you don't have to remove the airfilter.
The oil will go everywhere the fuel goes by becoming a mist and covering everything.
I haven't tried it yet but i suppose 4-5cm of oil in the fuel line would be more than enough...what do you think?

take the glow plug out and out 2 drops of oil in and crank it over then right before you put the glow plug back on put 2 more drops of oil then put the glow plug in and crank it over for a second or two.....and then make sure the piston is at bottom dead center

You are not oiling the main bearing or the rod this way.

yes you are trust me
if you feel like its not right open the carb all the way with the air-filter off and put 2 or 3 drops in and you dont even need to oil the bearing but if you want you can and as for the rod when you put it through the head it flows through the ports

Well i usually pull my cars down after a meet and i take the backplate of the engine off to check the rod and crank condition so its always just too easy to put a couple extra drops in, i can tell you i certainly don't have any rust in my engines at all

If I put my nitro's away this is how I do my after run oil treatments aswell. This way you know everything gets a good coating! Might puff a bit and be tuff to start atfirst, but its insurance!
