I have considered Doug's suggestion for pre-oiling, but I don't know how well it serves the purpose. The purpose of a pre-oiler is to pressurize the system and get oil on the bearings and up to the rockers before you turn the motor over and start it. By cranking it over with the ignition disabled, whether it be with a kill switch or removing the coil wire, you are still cranking the motor over dry for some period of time. It's probably better that just starting the motor, but ideally you want oil pressure before you crank it.

Mounting the accusump on the battery tray is a good suggestion
Replica is not a dirty word.
