Preserving an Engine

Unread post by checkride » Tue Aug 11, 2015 8:46 pm

Gents,

My engine arrived today. I need to know how best to preserve this motor internally. Its not going to be started for at least a year or until the Kit is complete. I still need to be able to work on the engine. I will not need to turn the motor over......How do the pros do this....

There's a section on "long term storage" in the Jabi Manuals that covers all the salient points.
