Default RE: How to break in a nitro motor?

turn about 3 turns out start it up let it warm up go full throttle for 5 minutes cut off let cool off. fill tank start again warm up go full throttle turn in a half turn let it run a tank out cut off let cool fill tank start again go full throttle lean motor out and back off half turn run for 5 minutes to make sure that you are not to lean stick finger over exhaust hole if oil is one finger you are good buy now you should be running good with no change in rpm. remember when you first start on 3 turns out the motor will run rough and as you go in on tunrns it will get better about 2 or 3 tanks it should hold a good setting.remember always fill tank before each step when tank gets low motor will lean out some. kenny from albany ga
