About 5000 hours if I remember correctly. I tried to change the oil every month. Little late on crate motor now. 4500 vs 1500 is worth a shot. We have it back together 90%. Gonna fire it up tomorrow. Wish me well.

We finished putting it back together and started it up. I'll post a video next.

Wow I forgot how good it sounded when it was new. It was a lot of work but the satisfaction is worth it. Saving 3k+ don't hurt either. It really humms nice. Anyone know the proper break in time? I was thinking about 25 hours before putting a load on it.

Most motors about 500 miles for break in.

I have been told about 1 hour is equivalent to 50 hours.

Also you should vary the rpms during break-in. Don't just run a constant speed the whole time. Change the rpms around every 5 minutes or so.

25 hours should be plenty

Does your White Magic have a belt or coupler type connection to the blower?

Dual belts. Correct me if I am wrong but I don't think any White Magics ever had couplers.
