jhall Posted July 6, 2005 Report Share Posted July 6, 2005 Hi all, Got the last of the parts today for my 4.6 N* and getting ready to install the radiator and pour in the the fluids. The Helms manual says to prime the engine oil system by adding oil and cranking the engine with the ICM disconnected for 30 seconds. If it does not prime, there are a couple of (apparently frustrating) options that would have to be invoked. This seems like a long crank time for the starter and I'm wondering if it will cause problems if I need to crank for 30 seconds again to prime the pump (after letting the starter cool for a few minutes). Any comments? If anybody's got an easier method for assuring proper priming in the event the 30 second cranking does not work, I'm all ears. Any comments appreciated. Hope to fire it up by the weekend Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
