Break-in oil

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I just got a 16hp B&S rebuilt and got it slapped in a simplicity 3410 (now a 3416:D:D). I was wondering how long before I change the oil? 1-2 hours or what? thanks, jh

All the engine guys I know recommend about 5 minutes on the first fill and then change it after about 1 hour and then at 5 hours then go to your regular change interval. I've used this method on a couple of engines and was amazed at the amount of gray matter that came out after 5 minutes. Oil is cheap and it doesn't take a whole lot to do this.
