Default 540 Johnson run in?

Hi

What's the best way of running in a new 540 johnson?

There some guys running it under water, but.....
Some say with load, some without
Some say for 7 minutes, some say for 7 hours
Some say full speed, some say at idle

Some anybody got any input on the whole water thing, or is there an other method of getting that motot humming?


Thanks!
PinkSlip

Buy a few and try different methods. The most important thing with johnsons is gearing, gear then hell out of it. Gearing in the 4's and 5's is pretty normal depending on your track.
