You want as much heat in that engine as possible at least 100* Celcius!!

Throughout the break-in process, regularly check the engine temperature to ensure it stays within the range of 200250F or 90-121C

If the head remains too cold during break-in, this will cause premature engine wear (just like an overly rich carb setting during break-in).
