For the guys that have a pump installed, what are you doing post flight? I used to evacuate the fuel lines then successively start my engine until it ceased to fire but having the pump hooked up, I'm not really able to do this. I just had to replace my engine bearings so Im not to keen on the idea of having to do it again anytime soon. Should I just toss in some afterrun oil? Will running the pump without fuel damage it?

Thanks!

Remove the fuel lines and turn the engine over like before, or put a clamp on the fuel line just before the carb.
I do not think I would like the pump to run completley dry after fuel has been in there though.
