First off, lets make clear what a Clutchbell is. The Clutchbell is the Gear that goes on the end of the Crank Shaft, and connects with the Clutch, and Spur to transfer Power to the Wheels. So with that being said, if you did manage to break in the Engines without the Clutchbells, then your Engines are likely not broken in at all. It is important to have a load in the Engines so that they break in correctly, and do not over-rev.

With that being said, I assume if it is "new" then the Engines are at factory settings. Which means they are very, very rich for break-in. I believe you should really read a Break-in Tutorial like: http://www.ofna.com/fuel.html, and if you still cannot grasp it, get in touch with a local Hobby Shop, and they will help you.
