Back with a video for the start up.
I said in the video YotaShop recommended break-in at 1500 to 2000. It should be from 1500 to 2400 rpm..
Also to prime the engine with oil...I ran the engine for Four 8 seconds intervals... no specific reason...
I varied the rpm between 1500 and 2400.
On my first 15 minute I had the heater set to maximum and the after burners full throttle..
Man-O-man did she put out some heat. But hey I did forget to open the copilot’s hatch… Not to worry none.. on the remaining 30 minutes my copilot better have his seat belt on tight cuz his hatch is gonna be fully opened..
My heat gauge never reached the mid range… (Slightly below mid point) only because I believe with all the good luck offers I got from members here… it paid of WID big dividends.. after I had primed the engine I was ready to start with the first 15 minute break-in.
Passing by the radiator ….I just for no conscious reason reached over and popped the radiator cap. Wouldn’t ya know it. I was low. Had to add 4 QUARTS… go figure..
(This is my opinion) Also know you do not have to do the full 15 minutes in one session. If the need be you can break it into 5 minutes intervals. You just cannot allow the engine to idle below 1500 rpm.
(Long drawn out reason for that)
Kill the engine while it is in the 1500/2400 rpm range.. You need a full 45 minutes of break in time on the engine according to YotaShop.. After all it’s their rebuild..
To me… my SotaShop’s rebuilt 5VZ sounds great and it feels great too if you can figure that one out.. I will be back here around 2000 miles with a compression reading. 2000 miles cuz I b headed to Houston as soon as possible..
I will also post a condensed Customer Review latter… so far all 5 Stars. I’m trying to find a Con some where??
I hope everyone interested in Toyota rebuilt engine got something from this review..
Until now I found a flat Zero Customer Review for YotaShop…..
PS: you should be aware.....what works for me does not assure the same will work fer you-all..
