When a car engine is new the piston is a tight fit in the liner. The liner is designed so as the piston goes up it gets tighter and tighter. This is called the PINCH.

As the engine gets used the piston and liner wear to a point where its a perfect fit. This usually takes 3-20 tanks, depending on your engine and this period is called RUNNING IN.

During the run in you need to run the engine rich (more fuel to air mixture).

For the first start it is difficult to get the engine to spin on the starter box. The engine will stick at Top Dead Centre (TDC). If it does this just use a screw driver on the flywheel and loosen it off again.

For first starting heat the engine to around 160 deg f and then try.

Once started go through the run in sequence of tick over for 2 tanks and then slow running around for 3 tanks before opening the throttle and leaning the engine out.

If your at the track and the starter box wont turn your engine then remove the plug and spin the engine over. As its spining replace the plug and start without taking the car off of the starter box. This takes 2 people.

Hope this helps

Cheers

When you are running in, try not to let the tank run dry, and as soon as the motor stops rotate the flywheel so the piston is at BDC otherwise is will jam as the motor cools.

My new JP took 7 tanks before the jamming thing was overcome, and that is with 19T motors in my starter box.

Any good motor will stick at Top Dead Center. A few things to try are: heat the engine with a hair blower, loosen the glow plug a little to get the engine to start and then tighten while running. It also helps to take out the plug and spin the engine over until fuel gets to the engine so that is done before you try and start. If it sticks you have to move it with a screw driver on the flywheel, kinda messes it up but there is nothing else to do.

take your engine out of the car, loosen it, than put it back in the car and heat up the head before you try again.

you have to setup the needle settings first as it is no use heating up an engine then spending 2 to 5 mins setting up the needles you set the needles to factory settings so you can start the engine and have it idle. i have no idea what the new jp fx factory settings are. You should of brought the JP FX engine that has been broken in already!
