Default Another Break-in Question Thread

I am attempting to break-in my first engine. It's on e of the Novarossi NS5's. I am using Trinity Monster Horsepower Break-in Blend. It has 18% oil compared to 12% in their reqular Monster Horsepower. The engine in supposedly setup on a flow bench with break-in settings before it leaves the factory. The problem is that with the rich factory settings and the excessive oil in the fuel, I can't keep it running for more than two or three minutes. I wanted to let the engine idle for the first couple of tanks but that's out of the question. I did finally get my first tank through last night. I had to blip the throttle ocassionally. It would still died after a couple of minutes. Then I had to remove the glow plug, tutn it over, let it set a little, replace the glow plug and then I was good for a couple more minutes. This shouldn't be this difficult. Please advise.

change fuels, i use byrons 20% for break in and 30% for racing. It works great.

Default Break In

Although your suggestion may lessen the richness problem, it still doesn't resolve the basic premise of my dillema which is, how are you supposed to run an engine overly rich for an extended period of time at low rpm without loading it up. Thanks for the response but I choose to stick with the fuel I have. That's why I bought the special break-in blend.

i had the same problem. and after a long time of that I said screw it and started slowly driving it around. of course the extra throttle helped get rid of the built up oil sitting in the pipe which is what I assumed to be the problem of it not staying started.

and after a while of your 1/2 tanks it cant hurt that much to slowly drive it around.

also you could try running it at a 45 degree angle to let the oil spill out as it is idling...haven't tried this but its a thought.

you should rev it slightly to remove the clog up

are you sure it is fuel. they do spit oil it wont hurt anything

it could also be going through your preasure line into the pipe and the comming out.
