Whilst Pete has been busy on the engine, I have finally completed my flare installation......
They fitted very well and I am happy with the results.  Thanks for the help Mick.  ;)

Nifty little coil setup there; should make the engine bay a bit tidier with that! Do you get a good spark with those?

I was even thinking of driving over for the dyno run, but I am not sure Les (and Pete) would appreciate us boof heads hanging around while they are trying to work.  ::)

Correct. There are OH&S rules to be considered and thus insurance issues. Their engine dyno is at a different location to their workshop (chassis dyno) in Charlton Ave Road Cheltenham.

hi Peter mc26
have you considered using Joe Gibbs breakin oil when you bring your creations to life?

Have heard good things ( due to it's high zinc content)regarding it's compatibilty with new cams etc
also can leave in for 3 or 4 events before reverting to normal oil (eg penrite hpr30 or similiar)

hi
we do use a brake in oil for the dyno it is also from the US but it only stays in for a short time once the rings are broken in the oil is dropped, as it is full of contamination you don't wont it in the motor , this only takes 20 to 30 min ,then we put fresh oil in and start some heaver load runs for some time. before we run it at full rpm we will let it cool down and check the tappets and head tension  and have a good look around to make shore the cam and rockers are OK then we run it up with a good eye on the fuel afr this process may take 5 to 6 hours and then new oil before  it goes out . there are many ways to do this process ,this has worked for me for Many years on hundreds of motors from datsun to gt3s , most oil brands have a brake in oil i recommend that people should use them with there new engines for a short time

I had a bit to do with Larry Perkins through our Castrol sponsorship years and Larry swore by (as did Ian Tate) using a monograde diesel engine oil as a break in product, high detergency and low additive doses are a good combination for break in.....and its cheap compared to so called branded break in oils which really aren't anything special.

Wouldn't recommend leaving any oil in there for more than the minimum required break in period though.
