Default New engine coming !

Hi I ordered a new engine for my kyosho inferno mp777 Nova plus S4 .21
I have had a a new engine already before and I know how to break in and all that,
But here is the question Nr1 Do you need a brand new glow plug to break in a new engine, asking because I have a good warm glow plug that I just had 2 runs with it ?
Also question Nr2 The nova plus s4 .21 is a pull start engine but I have a starter box , can I use the starter box to start the engine for the break in ?

More questions to come.
Thanks to all who have answered or tried.

You don't need a new glowplug . You can use starterbox.

Ok thanks for all answers
Here is another question that bothers me all the time, I know the max temp of the engine (290-300F) But while running your engine what temp should you not go under ? (after break in)

In real cars if you want to push harder you first need to let the engine warm up, not doing this and hitting the limiter on cold engine can do extra wear to your engine.

what temps should the engine not go under while running hard ( back to rc stuff ) Or dose that matter ?

Yes I know that during break in you need the engine temps 200 - 240

But after break in , what temps should the engine not go under while running hard?

You wont need a minimum temp. after breakin. Just be easy on throttle for 2-3 laps. After that if the engine is not up to a proper temp it wont perform well too and tell you need to lean it and the temp will come up with the performance. Our engines can't scream on a temp like 150. Make your tunning based on the performance and use temp just for checking.
