Will condensation create a problem? posted with wrong title 93zj new project...

Hey all, haven't been on the site as much as I plan to in the future. Jeep Forum has always provided great insight to DIY. As mechanically inclined that everyone props me on and I execute, I have a couple ???

93ZJ 148k- GC Limited 4.0 4x4 Reese hitch

I am replacing the Valve cover gasket, radiator, all lines including tranny (all fluids will be flushed before driven). I am ready for the work with a clean valve cover but it is delayed by rain....

*Will I need to flush the engine with a quart of oil before I start to get rid of any moisture that may have accumulated? (It was a steady to light rain for around 12 hours) I put the valve cover in it's place with no gasket to help...

Since I'm getting new tranny lines and flushing with machine and gasket will I need to do anything extra?

This is going to be my 2nd girlfriend so I only want the best for her, what my baby wants my baby gets!

you'll get more condensation in there while driving it on short trips than a little rain over a covered engine will let in.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.

Thanks, just stopped raining about an hour ago and I went out and inspected, nothing out of the ordinary. Hopefully 4 more days of sunshine cause I'm putting in 50+ from Friday to Monday.

Further inspection shows that I'm replacing the water pump as well as the thermostat housing and gasket. This baby's going to shine! Becoming a registered user, posting pics and going to start responding to post I can help with ASAP.

*Placed some clean rags over the rocker arms and thumb pressed them to the valve housing.
