So I had a fuel leak on my 450ES and have removed the carb to a local shop for rebuild. It was mentioned on here by a few with more knowledge than me, which is about everyone, to check engine oil for fuel that may have entered. I am going to change oil and filter before getting my carb back but have a question. Obviously oil drains much better if warm from running a few minutes, but not going to be able to start. Is it OK just to pull the drain plug and give it a couple hours or can I do anything else to get it all? I don't smell any fuel odor but a just in case, thanks.....
