That would be the ideal scenario for me because it would let me take a longer term approach to the project.

perfectly fine to do that...we used to pull some of them so they wouldn't get stolen during the winter...just cover it so no little critter makes a home inside the exhaust tube...if you are not going to work on it immediately... drain and refill with fresh oil... otherwise you risk the water separating out of the oil and freezing as well as rusting the bearings.

A good run is better than a bad stand!
