    Default 460 Break In Next Sat. FINALLY!! (isn't summer over)

    It has only taken a year, but I'll be breakin in the new cam this Saturday finally! Got a full load of Bradd Penn Oil in there and she's 100% back together. This is the first engine I have ever completely gone through and rebuilt myself so the anticipation and the nervousness is killing me! 460 bored 40 over, performer aluminum heads, 750 cfm edelbrock, full MSD, the over the top bassetts are a new addition if you can't tell by the holes in the transom). After a successful break in I plan on doing some reinforcmenet on the hull and puting a paint job on her! One More Year will ride once again!

    Cool

    Carter/Edelbrock carb, eh? I suggest you start with the ignition timing backed way off and risk fouling a few sets of plugs rather than burning holes in your pistons. Perhaps 28*@3000 at initial start-up and until you are running it at speed in the lake and doing plug readings. Only after that should you start playing with timing and fuel.

    Nice looking up grade. You will find out that 460's like a lot of carb. If you want fuel economy, stay with with what you got. If you want higher performance step up to a 850 Holley DP at a minimum. Keep looking at tha plugs and keep them fat.

    Default Lakes Only?

    I have the timing set to about 14 degrees BTDC right now and was planing on runing 2500+/- rpm for a 20-30 minute break in on land. Are you saying I need to be at 28 degrees btdc for that initial break in on land? Once it fires do you think I will need to adjust the timing at all from there to get it to run smooth for the break in time? Once again, this is a new and intimidating process for me so thanks for the help and sorry for any dumb questions!

    Brian,

    Best to give me a call directly; way too much to type.
