All engines require lubrication. During start-up in particular, the engine is “starved” for oil for a short period of time. This oil starvation, compounded over time, can lead to premature wear and engine failure. Pre-oiling eliminates this momentary oil starvation sparing your exotic engine unnecessary, and expensive wear!
One of the most important things you can do is pre-oil your engine, every time. It's cheap insurance.
Most technical orders state that the engine must be pre-oiled if it has been idle more than 72 hours.
We have made pre-oil kits for the following aircraft:
