Engine Break-In Procedure
Use conventional or break-in oil (non-synthetic) for the first oil change, be sure to check the oil level in the engine and prime the oil system with an engine priming tool.
Engines with flat tappet hydraulic cams only - Run the engine between 2,000 and 2,500 RPM's, with no-load on the engine for the first 30 minutes. This is critical to break in the camshaft.
Drive the vehicle with varying speeds and loads on the engine for the first 30 miles. Be sure not to use a lot of throttle or high RPM. Run five or six medium-throttle accelerations to about 3000 RPM (40 to 50 MPH), then letting off in gear and coasting back down to 20 MPH. Run a couple of hard throttle accelerations up to about 5000 RPM (55 to 60 MPH), then letting off in gear and coasting back down to 20 MPH.
Let the engine cool and change the oil and filter using conventional (non-synthetic) oil and check coolant level, top off if necessary. Drive the next 500 miles normally, without high RPM's (below 5000 RPM), hard use, or extended periods of high loading. Change the oil and oil filter again using conventional (non-synthetic) oil. Keep an eye on oil level during the first thousand or so miles.
It would be suitable to use synthetic motor oil after the second recommended oil change and mileage accumulation.
Looking to do an R&R with my 1989 firebird formula 350. I'm just wondering if it would be a simple pull out, bolt on the accessory components on this engine, and put the new one in without having to buy an extra kit or anything. Are there any suggestions?
Camshaft specs for this engine shown as 194/202 duration & .383"/.401" lift however, these specs do not match anything in the list of factory camshafts. I was wondering if this was a typo or if you can provide a part number for this cam.
Does jegs provide a list of parts recommendations for the major parts not included with this engine?
What is the optimal cruising RPM of this engine?
Does the 12681429K kit work with this block?
What is the recommended oil for this engine? I live in Florida. 90+ degrees 8 months of the year.
Will this engine work in a 1960 Corvette
will the fit a 2007 impala ss if not can you direct me to 1 thats does thanks.
