Hi Ed -I should be getting my car back soon from an engine rebuild, but I'm quickly running out of time to actually put a good amount of "break in" miles on it before the weather turns. I will definitely be sure to run it at least long enough to seat the rings and such, but I'm afraid I won't have enough time to put enough miles on it for it's first oil change. My mechanic recommends I do the first oil change after 700 miles. If I'm going to store this over the winter is there anything you can suggest I do to the engine so I can at least minimize any potential issues come spring time? As always thanks for all the help you've given me these past couple of years.
