Default Pg 43-09, Step 4 - Sniffle Valve

Hey guys, when I remove the plug to install the Sniffle Valve should I let the oil that Lycoming left in the engine drain now and leave it empty? Still probably won't fly until late March.

The oil in the induction system is primarily there from draining down from the cyl and is not doing much in the way of corrosion protection of that area.
