Re: New 383 Break In Today!
Being a new motor ,been in storage, been moved around, I would AT least, Pull the oil filter off and cut it open, look for anything like sparkles, dirt and stuff other than oil. Since its still gonna be a while until you go full ahead, I would change oil as well. Is your oil filter adapter plugged or allowed to bypass? Adapters that are not plugged , allow all oil and trash to bypass the filter momentarily, thus if you had any trash, it went back into the motor. Plugged bypass forces all oil thru the filter. Never know how many roaches were in that motor prior to startup.
