Alright, once again I'm humbled and in the learning phase, (note that I don't call myself an engine builder master, but an engine builder mentee). Anyway, what is a nondetergent oil, and what do you mean by "gear it". What I get from "gear it" is leave it in first and rev it, but get out of it without shifting, so that your engine is still turning due to your tires still turning. What exactly is the point of this, and how does it help seat the rings? Granted, it doesn't help me right now, but I'm always in the mood to learn from the elders.
