Not necessary..... I would only recommend that you pull the decomp lever 400/426 or pull the plug wire 450 and give her about 5-10 slow strokes to lubricate the top end prior to starting her after a very long nap. I've seen a few galled cam bearings over the years and figure an oz of prevention is much better than a 5 hundred dollar head repair.

Bonzai :)
