    I have a 97 indy 500 that was stolen, dumped into salt water and then recovered. I finally have mostly everything rebuilt/ cleaned/replaced/ reassembled etc. I am planning on dropping the engine back in this weekend. and wanted to know if there are any tricks or tips that I don't want to miss. I am mainly concerned with Oil and coolant. I want to ensure that nothing gets air locked etc. when I reconnect and fill up. should I premix gas for awhile to ensure oil flows from pump. I have replace oil pump with a used functioning oil pump and replaced check valves with new ones. also I don't want to overheat on first startup and want to ensure get coolant circulation. This is first rebuild and I want to be cautious. aside from these issues the rest should be good to go I and my father carefully cleaned, replaced, rebuild all components. any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks.

    yes definatly pre-mix your first few tanks to be on the safe side. make sure to also keep a close on the hi-temp light and check if the heat exchangers get warm. if they do then you know you are fine.

    another trick is to tie the oil pump wide open when you first start it that bleed's the pump out real fast
