Default What should I do to my engine?

I won't be running for a while, so I won't be starting the engine for a long time. After every practice day i put like 5-15 drops of after run oil. Last time I ran the engine was 2 weeks ago. I don't plan to run it again for a couple of months. What can I do to the engine to make sure it will work great after a couple of months? I have an RB v12 non turbo.

You can either strip it down and leave it in motor oil for the 2 months or run some afterrun oil through it and bung up the carb and exhaust port with tissue. make sure the piston is at BDC.

BDc is Bottom dead center. if you remove the plug and look in you will see when it is down and you should be able to feel the point when the piston is at the bottom.

Put the afterrun oil in through the glowplug hole and turn the crank over by hand a few times to get the oil down through the engine. Just remove the manifold, pipe and airfilter from the engine and bung up the holes with some tissue paper to keep the dirt and dust out.

Hey Grant this is Alan, we raced in open nitro at Wynnum couple of weeks ago.

My advice with the piston is to very carefully clean it with something like autosol making sure that you only clean the top surface of the piston. Do not touch the sides at all. Sometimes the burning and pitting is only due to excess oil sitting and burning on top of the piston. When you clean it it should be flat and shiny. Try that one first.

What type of motor is it?
