On a stock gas engine, the initial break-in is 30 minutes @ around 2500 rpms, so I'd guess the diesel would be at around 1700 rpms. You can look it up, but you'd get 20 different opinions.For running during break in, i have it loaded up with scrap, I'm gonna throw some concrete blocks on there too. Now, should I be going slow on the road to keep rpms low, or do I want to rev it up more while it's loaded? I was taking it somewhat easy yesterday, just to make sure nothing was gonna fly out. For the test of the period though, I'd want to be up in the rpms with the load in it right? Since for TM spec's break in would be full load on the dyno for a while, I'd want to replicate that right, run it fast and hard to get the rings sealed?
