Good day to you all.

What is the best strategy for allowing the new engine to set?

I am about to get my B2200 SR-5 back on the streets after a complete engine overhaul (new pistons and rings, camshaft and timing gears /band, crankshaft metals, all seals; re-furbished block, head and crankshaft).

I know that these little engines are hard-to-beat-workhorses and that, well taken care of, they would last close to eternety (or a few months under).

If there is onfo you recommend I read, please let me know.

Thank you for your advise.

Its no big deal really. But if you can use high zinc break-in oil for the first 500 miles and then change the oil to regular oil. Don't rev the engine quickly or over 2500 rpms for the first 1500 miles if you can help it. Try to drive it at different speeds starting with the slower at first then getting up to interstate speeds.
