Mark

I'd go for "Carbon Fingerprint" since in reality it will be just that

2 Schools of thought on this one Cods, I've had many an experienced fitter, and I mean very knowledgeable men, perhaps even more than you say ... open it up early and it will be a good motor all its days. If not you'll soon know. I , personally am in two minds, heart body and soul suggests follow the manual, but then they would say that, to avoid early warranty claims ! On the other hand, hammering a new motor never seemed a good idea

Well I have been known to run an engine for quite a while - 220,000 miles is my record so far and the engine was still fine!!! I have never blown an engine yet(touch wood) - I always run them in for a bit longer than they say. I never rev too hard until up to temp and regular oil changes - I tend to rev to the red line all the time but never on a cold engine.

Yes yes this is all about car engines but most outboards are the same - especially the 4 strokes.

check this link out i beleive in it,

Interesting reading, everybody has the urge to open up the throttle a bit on a new toy and lets face it lots of people do even if its just momentarily, but to think that it might actually be good for the engine certainly chucks a spanner in the works

Sorry but I think it's a load of crap for any engine you want to last a long time.

Dragsters use this method of running in - they start up from cold and hammer it almost straight away. Cold engines have much higher compression as the oil is so thick. The difference is the engines only run for a few seconds and then are rebuilt.

There aren't many engines around that rival glow motors for power to weight etc - they STILL advise proper running in.

The best example is to look at piston engine aircraft operating procedures - your life literally depends on your engine and you would never even think of taking off until oil pressure and cylinder head temp were up to spec.

You can damage an engine by being too gentle with it. You can get carbon deposits building up etc. This tends to be a problem with older people driving modern cars who never go over 3,000rpm. As long as an engine is warm and run in it's fine to go the rev limit in every gear!!!

Besides which it's not just piston rings you need to think of - there are lots of other moving parts - gears for example need to bed in properly and not be subjected to too high a load at first. And this applies to ANY gear wheel.............
