Good one ....

Post  ThndrChkn on May 11th 2014, 3:45 pm

Ok, I had a guy tell me this morning that his machinist told him if he rotates his new short block "75" times by hand, that he won't have to seat his rings because by rotating it in his manner will "pre-seat" the rings ...

This is news to me... LOL!! Is anyone else familiar with this new technology ?

I agree Rick ... I ain't never seen anyone can spin an engine fast enough by hand to create much of a heat source ... LOL!!

Doug,when you see that Guru engine builder again,tell him thx for the tip,and that you gave it 10 extra for good measures. Cool

After priming a new build with oil, don't you want the thing to light off asap so as not to wipe all of the lube off the cam lobes and such? This advice goes directly against that too.  Suspect

The story I always heard for years was that because the moly coating on rings was soft, by the time you rotated the engine enough to install the last piston, the rings on the first installed piston were already broke-in.

I kind of understand that part Dave... But like Rick stated, I was always under the impression that heat and compression were needed to fully seat the rings ...

Myself, once the engine is up to temp, I just run er up on the converter 3-4 times initially, then the first chance I get, I drive it like I stole it ...
