|tornado-tech||I agree. That is how I break them in "Break them in like you are going to run them". My 1st mud run was the day after I put my motor in and this was a 4-run 200' mud drag. The motor was run just long enough to set total timing and adjust the carburetor the night before (maybe 3-4 minutes). People thought I was crazy to do this but this is the way I break in new or rebuilt motor since I been racing one way or another.|

|ccnova||We used this method on our small block Chevy about 2 years ago and have had great results. Personally I will never do it any other way again. Make sure the entire engine is pre-lubed all fluids are correct timing is set etc on initial start-up and do as it says. Good luck, ccnova|

First, what do you think of this procedure:
and last, if you disagree, what method do you recommend for breaking in a new engine.
