    I sent the mrs into town with the list of stuff to get and thats what she came home with. Havnt read the bottle yet. Still cleaning the crap out of engine this arvo and ended up with some nice soggy tingly hands from soaking in degreaser too long too straight down to the mrs pantry to raid her vinegar. This degreaser came in a 20 litre from cleaning mob and this stuff definitely didnt miss out on a good dose of basey lye lol

    Hi
    Running in oil has no friction modifiers mainly. This additive can glaze bores and rings . [prevents a little wear which causes good sealing].
    That's why synthetics should notbe used when first starting new engine .
    Some of the reason why moly rings were invented is for quicker break-in .[info from ACL]

    Hi Bulldogs,
    Use a good coating of cam and lifter lube, prime the oil system, make sure it fires straight away, do not turn the engine over and over to get oil pressure, all you are doing is rubbing off all the cam lube. Use 30wt break in and run for 30 min varying the revs from 1800 to 2500 Use K&N HP-2003 filter. Then change to VR1 10-40 it is ok for 5000 kms. I recommend 5000 k's for most engines, they will love you for it. We have tested the VR1 in a 6lt LS that was abused for 2000 racing k's and is Australian No.1 i his field.
    It came apart like new at freshen with no stains, sludge etc.

    Its alive might have to do something about sump temps though. Had the hose on mist over radiator and sump during cam run in and the water flash boils as soon as it hits the bottom of sump so the pan part under crank is pretty hot it seems. The oil tank is like a box welded on front of sump out in front of where it usually would be but that part didnt boil but steamed it a bit. Got a infra red thermometer i will put on pan and see how hot it is.
