9 thoughts on “Engine Break-In: It’s Easier Than You Think

  1. The “infant mortality” reference was in poor taste. An editor should have caught this misguided attempt at the levity of comparing an engine failure on a new engine to the death of a child.

  2. I’m about to go through this with a new Lycoming in my C182S. I manage CHT to keep the hottest cylinder about 380 degrees. I don’t like the idea of letting it run 50 degrees hotter than that. So, how do you “measure” CHT drop if you’re managing that temp with a combination of fuel and cowl flaps? What max CHT should be allowed during break-in? Thanks for any advice.

  3. Bill Sir you have shared a very good post regards AME. It is so knowledgeable for me. Please keep this up. I thought Aircraft Maintenance is not an easy task but you proved it is not so tough also as i thought. One requires well training for this. For this purpose i would suggest the IGESAME college India. Also from aeronautics career prospects in India a student will have several opportunities.

  4. Hi Bill Sir,
    I am a 2nd year student of Aircrfat Maintenance Engineering at Igesame, Delhi NCR India. I learnt more from the post you share. Thanks

  5. Mechanical systems are subjected to the bathtub reliability curve… youth errors, maturity, old age.

    Minimizing youth error is indeed critical.
