let it cool and start again.You should have as many fans as you have on it.I had a fan laying on my engine.bm

When you resume break in....do the 2500 for 20+ again....I left my rad cap off, in case I needed to add water..I also ran extra fan...What's your thermostat...Mine is a 180.. My temp never got higher than that..I ran 2200-2500 for 30 min...Always resume for 20 min. no matter how many times you have to shut down..........So I've been told....
