...... I completely agree with Motoman's
assessment of the manufacturer's recommendations. They are crap. I
also completely agree with getting a load on the engine as soon as you
can. I didn't notice any admonishments about allowing a new engine to
idle, but I NEVER allow a fresh engine to idle, it is the kiss of
death IMO

So to avoid the 'kiss of death', one should do what at stops?
How about putting it in neutral, and *slightly* revving the engine above
idle speed, then down, then back up??? This avoids both problems of
idling and keeping RPM constant, but is it the thing to do???
