firing order + restart after 2 years

Sorry to waste your time,
but I have read lots of threats meanwhile about firing order
-clockwise/counter clockwise and get a little confused.
Is this the correct way to plug my 87 930?


second, I want to restard my engine after 2 years without any turn.
-unplug CDI
-remove fuel relay
-crank until oil pressure

should I prelube the cylinders?
some more advices?

thanks
Falk

The cylinders likely have a little oil in them already from having sat so long. The points you mention are good, I would stick with those.

If you're reconnecting plug wires too, which It sounds like you are. Set your engine to TDC for no.1 and make sure that when you reconnect your plug wires, your no1 cylinder plug wire points to where your rotor is.

I would squirt a little motor oil in the spark plug holes to be safe.

I'd even do that on a lawnmower or snowblower.

2 years of gravity will leave very little on the cylinders other than at the very bottom.

I use marvel mystery oil instead of just oil in the plug holes. Burns off faster and doesn't foul plugs as easily.
