Don't exceed the rated compression of your cylinder. You might get a little smoke when you start it up - again, depending on how long you let the oil drain past the rings?
It doesn't appear you are in a hurry?
This is fun......
the rope and the oil are worthy of consideration, thanks for that one! Let's just say I can't afford to rush or hurry this process; I'm not "throwing caution to the wind" ~ LOL.
This is fun? ~ this made me laugh, thanks for injecting a little humour into this scenario
