YAY the tourists are GONE
First you want to run the engine dry.
If you can use a FAI fuel with a castor blend.

The fill with ATF, but in a plastic bag

Shalor Rislone oil treatment works fine also. It is available in any auto parts store. I've used it to store engines for several years. Good idea to put them in a plastic bag to control the mess.

Oil liberally with Marvel airtool oil. You don't have to drown it. Just make sure it's worked well into the bearings.

The customary brand used in most ARO (After-Run Oil) is Dexron. Prefer the latest IV.

It is the type GM use and most others too (but not FLM), for their auto-transmission and their power-steering.

You can get it in virtually any auto supply shop.
