Just replaced oil line in F7 after belt blew and cracked oil line. What is the best advise to make sure there are no air bubbles in line blocking oil flow? It appears there is no oil in line, but want to make sure.

First thing that pops in my head is to run a tank a premix and keep an eye on the new line.

Oil lines should "bleed themselves" because of the draw from the crankcase. However if you are at all sketchy about this, run some pre mix in the tank.

All ready pre mixed the gas. Will keep an eye on it

Hold the lever to the full throttle position on the oil pump, with the motor running at idle. The bubbles should pull through in a minute or two. Yes, it will smoke a lot, but wont hurt it.

A most excellent idea.
If you blead the pump wont have a problem
