Engine break in recommendations and delivery

Is here a specific recommended break in period for the Ford engine/chassis on a Allegro? If so, is there a concern that the unit is driven by a Tiffin driver towing a dinghy for hundreds of miles while engine is brand new? I am worried that the new unit driven at a constant high speed while pulling a toad is harmful to a new engine. Any thoughts are appreciated.

Your engine break in thinking is behind the times, sorry. Modern engines don't need it (although it doesn't hurt) and won't suffer from the lack of it. My advice, jump in, drive, and enjoy your new 32SA.

by the time its delivered, it will be broken in

When we had our gasser, I did change oil and filter the first time at about 2500 miles though, probably did not have to but it made me happy..

Just get that first oil and filter change like the Ford svc booklet says and then use Mobile 1 and change the oil/filter once a year. The two V10's I've had both had about 6,500 on them, when I got them. So far I've never gone over 6,000 miles in a year. Dave
