Default Re: Rebuilt motor start up

"Now, for the initial firing, prime the entire unit, 4 qts of oil, with an external priming tank, leave the "grub" screw in place (this means no filter during the fire-up), and wrap it up. After it's all broken in, remove the "grub" screw and plumb in the filter! Should be fine!"

Not sure I understand this, isn't the "grub" screw blocking the oil passage? I would think you would be stating it the other way around, the "grub" screw has to come out without the filter and back it with the filter. A mistake in this area will be catastrophic!!!
