post rebuild

Just rebuilt my 87 sam with the 1.3. Replaced pistons, rings, bearings, ect, ect. When I first started up it ran real good. In fact I couldn't believe how quiet it was. But after running it for awhile, I saw blue smoke coming from the exhaust. Not a lot, but some. That was the reason I rebuilt it in the first place. My question is, do the rings need some time to seat? If so how long, what speed should I run it?

At my work when we rebuild diesel engines, we run them at top speed for a couple of hours to break them in. But thats the govt for ya.

Thanks for the help.

Aloha

Re: post rebuild

Yes, checked the valve seals and guides. I also replaced the PVC. Like I said it's not smoking much, only after the engine is warmed up. Maybe I'm just freaking out over nothing. Am I?

Thanks

Re: post rebuild

if you used the good rings, it may take a little time for them to seat in. Use real low vis. cheep oil for about 500 miles, and then change to the good stuff. I usualy run them up to 50 in 3rd gear and then let it back off to 30 and do this a few times right at first. After that , just keep running it at different speeds for a while, it should be ok.

Did you bore it out?

Re: post rebuild

I haven't had time to look for the Lost Dutchman's mine, we have over 200 of our own to dig up nuggets on.
