383 Chevrolet Low-Stress Breeak-In on Simtester
This is a 383 Chevy stroker motor that was going into an off-road
pre-runner, here it is getting a low-stress break-in on my Simtester. The
engine runs for about 40 minutes as I will typically see a 2-4 amp decrease
in drive motor amperage and a 2-5 rpm increase. Both of these numbers
represent a decrease in friction as the engine breaks-in.
