Re: Simulated Break In Period
I'm with the ride it like you stole it crowd.
I've been racing and generally beating the snot out of every type and size engine since I was old enough to wrap and yank a pull start, and I have never had problems.
Ring-dingers need very little break in anyway, and I'd rather find any weakness right off the bat than have it puke 50 miles from the house later. Just give it enough oil and don't gouge on it for at least ten minutes after it starts and you'll be fine.
I've been doing things this way for over 40 years and my junk runs fine.
If more is better, then too much is just enough.
If you can't afford it, build it yourself.
