RE: Tapered-Bore Engine Break-in - Upgraded

It is through heat (and expansion) that an engine makes its power, but it is only between 20% and 26% of that heat; that is actually used by the engine to spin the prop.

I will not argue with you for the sake of arguing, regarding the oil's contribution to carrying away heat in glow engines.

Of-course, 378.
