But don't forget to check your headlight fluid, very important.

yea, that logic doesen't seem too sound, but like said earlier if its put together with assembly lube like it should be, it will be fine for the few seconds it takes for the pump to make pressure... why else would you use assembly lube???

Holding the throttle WOT WILL shut down the injectors, as stated before.. But if you're wanting to prime the oil pump I would assume you don't want a dry start? So why, then would you turn the engine over? It's a dry start, Spark or not..

Do it by hand, as previously stated. But also, if you've used assembly lube you're perfectly fine.
