That will give you time to go over everything..Make sure everything's secure..nut's/bolts all tightend to specs..check tranny/mounts. When starting for the first time, have water for your rad and extra fans running to keeper cool...always good to have someone with you to help watch over things..run your engine for 20-30 minutes at 2000-2200 rpm..If you have to shut it down for any reason. Resume breakin the same way...Don't think cause you shut it down after ten minutes you can finish breakin for 10 more minutes...You have to run your engine for 20-30 min. continuous. I let mine run for 30....comprende.??.

Start reading..Ask questions that are simple to understand..There are many things that must be done..You just don't buy an engine, trans, bolt it in and your on your way..Clean your engine bay. wiring, radiator..battery..and whatever else will be in the way..I completely striped and painted my bay first, like most of us..Much easier to work in a clean area..Have all your tools on-hand..I hated running back and forth to my shop, since I dropped my engine and trany in my driveway..Think and plan....good luck..
