I've rebuilt several engines in my time and have always changed the oil and 
filter after the initial break-in, 500 miles and 1000 miles as per the 
advice of an old engine rebuilder.  If this technique has done any good or 
not I can not say but...
The oil has always been clean there after, never black and sludgy between 
normal (3500 mile) oil changes.  And,  I have never had any oil related wear 
problems after putting many thousands of miles on the engines.
