View Full Version : Break-in Oil And Filter Requirements?

Are there special “break-in” OIL and filter requirements on a NEW Block?

I’m about to put in a new Alusil sort block and I have a question on break in requirements:

1 – A way to PRIME the oil pump and oil system?

2 - Is there a special break-in OIL to start a new block?

3 - Is there a special break-in oil FILTER for 1st use?

4 - What assembly lube should I use on engine parts?

5 – Any other “trick”
I’m new to the BMW engine surgery, but I remember that when I rebuilt my Mercedes block, there was a special filter and oil for 1st start use.

Thank you in advance for your advice,
