I preload the oiling system on any engine for the first startup. The 
assembly lube ought to protect things but I prefer to pull the coil + 
wire and crank the engine until the oil pressure light goes off. As the 
article says - remove the oil pressure switch and crank until the oil 
comes out the sensor hole. I agree on the rest of the procedure i think. 
Probably want to static time the distributor and static balance the 
carbs first.
