Break In Oil Recommendations?
 
I am getting real close to putting oil in my Reviva “drop in” reman 3208.

I would appreciate any recommendations regarding the “break in” process,
especially regarding the oil I should use for the break in period.

I was looking a just using Delo 400 15/40, and adding some ZDDP
(not sure how much to add though)....

thanks, dave

My first trip with the reman engine will be about 1000 miles
(including a stop at WOG rally), and I was thinking that I would
change the oil after that trip...does that make sense?

I suggest you talk to the rebuilder and follow their requirements.

10-4, makes sense...
I understand that there are a few other folks who have recently
gone through this process too, any input is appreciated...

You might want to look into this oil. I wouldn't run it for more than 200-400 miles.

Bobbie,
I didn’t know there was another SP owner in Jacksonville.
Let’s get together sometime!

Sure. I bought Chip Lamb's SP36. I'll PM my contact info.
