Default Bench Run in Methods with Prop

Give us your proven run in methods for .21 Novarossi engines.
I have been using Swauger method on my Ninja/GRP motors with great success.
I have now bought a Novarossi 359 which I want to run in on the bench prop.

Thanks

Default Break in

I saw a post on rb products forum about a new break in procedure. I used it and it works awsome. I made a setup to fit in a gallon jug that I can run the engine nonstop. Go to rb's website and read about it.

This is an endless discussion. There are so many methodes and even more variations on them and all will give a result which is not predictable because the tolerances.

The latest trick is remove the head and start to run in at normal operating temp (+/- 90 to 100 degrees celcius). Do this for about 4 tanks and then mount the head again.

The most important thing with any break in method is to make sure you get the motor up to temperature. If you break it in cold you are ruining it. If you use a bench put a shroud of some sort around the head to help it get hot. Aluminum foil seems to work.

I still prefer to do it in the car.

I used an auto hose to bucket, works well in suppressing engine noise.
Engine ran richer but will adjust to suit when engine is installed in car to finish off run in

What an amazingly interesting approach to noise suppression. Never seen anyone do this before. Anyone else try this or have something to say about it?

I have seen it on several toyfairs, factories demonstrates their starterequipment in real live and to get rid of the noise, smoke and smell they use a bucket with water.

Doesnt really help with smell but does with smoke.
At idle it sounds like a 1/1 outboard boat engine
