after run oil in the carb?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I was wondering the best way to put after run oil in the engine, I have heard that putting a few drops in the carb and bumping the engine over a few times is not the right way to do it??? any suggestions, and how much.

take the glow plug out, put 3 drops of after run in the engine then turn over. There you go! Personally, i don't use after run unless i am storing my engine for 3 months or so. Tekno.

Typically the best way would be to put them in through the top of the head.

I use Morgan fuels (sidewinder) that has a blend of various ingredients which includes an after run oil... Then there is no chance of an accidental piece of debris that falls in the top of the cylinder while you try to put the oil in.

If you do not use a fuel that does not have Detergents in it, and don't want to remove the plug because of dirt, You can put it in the carb. be sure to fully open the slide carb and place the drops strait down the venturi onto the crank. If you don't the after run oil can seep into the slide boot and break it down. It will expand and fall off easily then allow dirt in. I use after run oil after each because i know i will not use it from week to week and i find this method fast and easy. it also allows the oil easier access to the bearings and while the engne is hot. I cannot garantee that this is the right way but i do it and so far no problems.
