I have a low pressure inline universal electric fuel pump E8012s if I remember. I have it on a project Ford Truck, I havent started the truck in about 2 years and wondered what I need to do to the pump to avoid damage to it when I start it up soon. I know when the pumps are shipped they contain some sort of oil and after 2 years I am sure the pump is bone dry.
Can you "backwash" from the carb line with a slug of fuel mixed with 2 stroke oil?
I can just remove the pump quite easily and the lines were replaced 2 years ago. My plan was to just remove the pump and lubricate it but just wasnt sure what type of oil to use.
