The Rotax 912 engine has dry sump forced lubrication system. They say rotating the prop in the correct way (counter-clockwise when looking from the prop side) will get the oil from the bottom of the crankcase to the oil tank.
How does this "force back by blow-by gases" work? Is it air which gets through the carburetors and cylinders to do the crankcase what pushes the oil from the engine? If oil gets from the bottom of the crankcase to the top part of the oil tank, where the "burping" sound emerges then? In the oil line, or at the bottom of the crankcase?
If the oil gets pushed by air, why is it bad to rotate the prop in the opposite direction? Air would get to the bottom of the crankcase and air would get to the oil input line and "burp" at the bottom of the oil tank. But if engine then runs in correct direction again, won't the oil be sucked from the bottom of the oil tank again? My only guess is it won't due to the air in the oil pump which would just spin without sucking any oil...
