Controlled break-in oil supplied (10W-30W) and a conscientiously applied maintenance program will help assure satisfactory service for many hours from your Onan engine. Break-in or ideal fitting of all internal moving metal parts can best be achieved by maintaining proper cooling and correct   lubrification during the running-in period. Run the engine at about half load for the first three hours with intermitent periods of full load to control engine break-in. Engine damage can be caused by high engine operating temperature during break-in. NOTE :

After 2 hours run-in of new engines, use oil recommended in lubrification chart (page 28).
