new engine priming

I just primed my new engine but I can't get it running for a little. Will i need to prime it again later on before i get it running? how long does the priming last?

priming engine

Hi,i dont know how long the priming will last,im assuming,you are talking about priming thru the distributer hole,(engine oil) when i have an engine on the stand,i re-prime it about every 2 weeks,as well as rotate the engine,i also squirt a little oil in the cylinders.

Hi
Since this is a new engine I'm assuming it has some kind of paste lubricant on the moving parts, that is all that's needed while your waiting to start it for the first time. Just prior to start up prime it, fill the carb, check that everything else is set so it will start right up.

PS If you continue to prime it, you'll wash off the paste lube that's there, & not have any for when you start it.

you mean assembly lube? then yes it does. Well i probably can't start it up for atleast a few weeks. Will this priming suffice?
