Then I might wait until car is painted and interior is back together before I brake it in.
I have another engine in it now so I am not in rush. What is the best way to preserve the engine for 6 months or so? I dont want any rust developing inside

Cheers

That isn't what he meant !!   HE meant "will sit idle" for 6 months (probably longer) WHILE continuing restoration.   From reading this post - he knows to fire and get to 2500/3000 RPM at once and DUMP the oil from that period .

AS TO not "rusting" - you just want to keep it sealed.  (never remove plugs on a motor that will sit)   Nor would you move a carb UNLESS you tape seal from the atmosphere.

Thanks for all your help guys. Really appreciate it
Alex
