There IS going to be some metal worn off during the process of ring and cam break in. Fot that reason I believe seeing a film of magnetic particles as well as a metallic hue to the oil after the cam break in of a flat tappet engine the norm.

As for the rest of it, if that's your experience then so be it. But it is not going to be something that everyone- including myself- will agree to all of.

What kind of oil do u recomend for break in and what kind after break in? I dont want to use newer oils even if I have to order my oil online. Every oil I use looks burnt after a few 100 miles and always smells burnt. I want to use thicker oil than recomended for my truck which is 10w30. I want good added protection in a oil I use.

This is off subject but what is a ball park price on line honeing a 350
