27roadsterguy....if you do a search on this forum you will find several days worth of reading on break in procedure and what oil to use. The new oils have been mandated by the EPA to reduce the amount of zinc/phos. Rotella T used to be "around" 1200 ppm and now it's 800 ppm, still good but could use a little extra for a new engine.
There are several companys offering a true break in oil like Joe Gibbs, Comp Cams and others. Some guys use the Valvoline VR-1 racing oil which still has lots of the good stuff. The general concensus on synthetic oil for breaking in an engine is a NO-NO, the stuff is just too slick and does not allow the parts to burnish against one another or to take a set. I'm also 65 and learn new things every day on here, do some reading and have fun with your 292.....Dave
