I have just gotten my 302 back after being freshly rebuilt (THANK CHP). Only problem is that in the excitement of getting the engine brought back from the dead I did not factor in the fact that the car might lag behind about a year. So the engine has to sit in my garage that is less then air tight and needless to say not climate controlled. I was told to get it in the house, which makes the wife not very happy and carrying it in is not an easy process. I've consulted with Ken Lucas from Lucas Restorations who suggested I have it dynoed and broken in, which is scheduled for this week. The thought being that this will get everything coated and worn in properly after 3-4 hours of running. The shop doing the dyno then suggested that once I get it back home, wrap it in a blanket, put it in plastic and once a week or so, since I don't have experience setting solid lifter valves, that I turn it over about a quarter of a turn to releave the tension on the down valves. Also we plan to break it in with Joe Gibbs oil since the dyno operator said he has seen a few wiped cams lately with lesser oils. So after this long winded post mainly what I'm interested in any thoughts on storing the engine without harming it in anyway.
Thanks in advance for any feedback,
