[DML] Pre-pressurizing oil before cold start:

Hello List,

Two things related to pre-pressurizing oil before starting a Delorean:
1.  I haven't started my 83 in about six months.  I have changed the 
oil and filter, and I want to ground the spark and crank the engine for 
five or 10 seconds maximum to circulate the new oil and build up the 
oil pressure somewhat before re-connecting the spark and starting it.  
In the "old days" of my 69 Buick, all I had do to was ground the coil 
wire going to the center of the distributor.  Is this all I have to do 
to my Delorean, or will I risk shorting out a module somewhere? 

2.  Does anyone have any experience with a small 12V oil pump that can 
be used to pre-pressurize the oil before starting an engine?  I 
remember seeing them advertised and wondered if anyone has installed 
one on a PRV.

Thanks much, Gentlemen.
