RE: 220SEb 1965 rebuilt engine break in time
general common sense things.. check brakes (master cylinders, rubber lines, cylinders, etc) check fluid levels, check the brakes, check the brakes!..
If the engines been recently re-built, run it in for 1500-2000 miles. I would personally keep it under 2750rpm for 750miles and then under 3250 for the rest. Make sure it has some light weight oil in it (or running in oil) and change it (and the filter) at 750miles and again at 1500miles, when you can put proper oil in it. I would remove the oil pan and clean it out at this time also.
Hope this helps
