 This is late but..No it won't hurt the engine, the engine has stopped . Also, they were used in the military as an acro trainer during WW II. I'm sure there is weare when there is no oil pressure  but it must be minimal/

  Subject: [Acro] Stearman acro

  A friend of mine has a Stearman with a Continental 220 on it. He is
  interested in doing a little acro in it and wondered if the absence of an
  inverted fuel/oil system would lead to any engine damage during the brief
  neg G experienced during slow rolls, loops etc. Could anyone offer any
