    If you're concerned about it, you can put just a bit of oil in each cylinder (marvel mystery oil would be good 1/2 OZ in each) and disconnect the coil, ground the hi tension lead and crank it over a bit before starting it up.

    I will also like to add it is reccomended by most engine builders not to break your engine in with synthetic oil, it lubricates to much not letting your rings seat in correctly , conventional oil is key to get things seated properly
