pre-start oiler
We all know that most engine wear happens during startup, in those seconds when the oil pressure is near zero. The solution is already available as an aftermarket item; an auxilliary electric oil pump that works in parallel with existing mechanical oil pump. This should be a standard feature on all internal combustion engines. As the ignition switch is turned to "start," the electric oil pump is started; the starter itself does not activate until the oil pressure reaches 10 psi. When oil pressure reaches 15 psi the electric pump is turned off.
