Default .12 engine break in...

I just put a new sleeve and piston in my motor. It's only and associated .12, nothing fancy. Any break in tips?

I did lube everything when I put it back together so it's not dry or anything.

I'm sure you already started your break-in, if you're impatient like I am, but here's what I used on my last 2 engines.

Break in tips:

Be patient

let the engine cool between tanks

Put a few drops of high quality after-run oil before starting it for the first time

Do a few tanks of idle and few more with slow driving (number varies with engines, be on the safer side by doing more )

After break in, take glow plug out and put around 8 drops of after run oil in, then give it a few tugs or if ur using a starter box give it a spin.

hope this helps
