Default Re: Breaking in a new motor

As for what is proper break-in procedure; you'll get almost as many different opinions as those who have posted their ways of doing it. You''ll have to decide that for yourself after reading the pages of discussion on the subject. One thing to consider is to completely ignore the kit instructions about oil mix ratios. Do not start with the infamous 16:1 ratio recommended by most engine kit instructions. 24:1 is about the maximum amount of oil you want to use.
