Default Re: made a mixture mistake... any suggestions?

I believe that the correct mixture for break-in is 1 gallon of gas to 8oz oil. You basically ran the engine lean. If it was too lean than that could have ruined the engine. I usually run the 1gal of fuel to 4oz oil mixture on broken in engines with no issues, so there should not be any problems with the actual engine. The carb might have been tuned for the richer mixture and now needs to be re-tuned.
