Even BL, bless their cotton socks, used to put their engines through a
break-in cycle in the 70s.  At the end of the production line they were filled
with some kind of oil and bolted to a moving platform that engaged with one
end or the other of the crank.  As they went along the crank was spun at a
couple of thousand rpm or so for several minutes, then drained at the end.
Not as comprehensive as this, but better than nowt.

  Be a little careful of comparing oil change recommendations for new cars
  rebuilt engines. Porsche, for instance, puts every engine through a full
  break in procedure before ever installing the engine in a car...
