Looking for some advise on break in on my top end rebuild. I have read so much about this I don’t know which way to do it

Let it warm up, then go find a good hill and climb it a few times using a gear a little higher than usual. The idea is to apply more cylinder pressure on the rings to help seat them on the cylinder. You really only get a short period of time to get them to seat after that the walls get too smooth to do much good.
They also recommend using a non detergent oil (low grade-single viscocity 30 wt). Walmart sells it near the small engine section away from the regular oils. It's super cheap which is good because you're gonna drain it right out after an hour or two of good beak in.
