Have also heard the suggestion that you should just thrash a motor from the outset to get the cylinder pressures up and force the rings to bed in properly.
But don't take my word for it. Again, I aint brave, especially if I've put it together myself.
Not quite a straight thrash, but there is a specific procedure/sequence of loading you can use IF
your nicely rebuilt engine is machined to the correct tolerances.
I'm not going to post what it is though as I'm guaranteed someone will try it on an engine and blow it up...
