I am having my 72-2lit rebuilt but will not be able to get the car on the road to break in the engine/seat the rings until the coach work is completed and the glass in at least until summer. I would like to have the mechanic be sure the engine starts and is timed correctly which should happen within the next month or so however, I'm told that it is best to let the engine sit dry until I am ready to seat the rings. I hesitate to run the engine at all just to get it started without oil. Should we add oil just to get the motor started then drain it or start it dry but don't let it run long enough to heat up and risk glazing the cylinder walls? I'm open for suggestions. TIA!
