Using the Serpent Run-In Bench (#3400) makes it a lot quicker and easier to run-in the engine. Richen the main needle by ½ turn, amd run the engine for 10 minutes at low RPM. Then run the engine for an additional 15 minutes at medium-high RPM at the same richness setting.
Install the engine in your car, and run the car through 3 more tanks of fuel while adjusting the carburetor to achieve a good top-speed.
