I've had the same question in my mind for a couple weeks. I'm
thinking (not having done this on an I5) that I would prime the
oil system by pulling the plugs and cranking the motor to get oil
pressure before trying to start the motor. This is the only way
I can come up with to spin the crankshaft-mounted oil pump fast
enough to get any pressure.
(My other thought was to use an Accusump or similar device to
pre-pressurize the system during initial startup. Anyone ever
used one of these things?)
