I'm a firm believer in not revving it too high for the first 1000 or so, but still loading the engine hard in both directions. Let it brake hard down hills and give it plenty of gas going up them. Vary the RPMs plenty and don't spend a long time idling the thing when you fire it up the first time. Give the carbs a rough setting so that it'll run and immediately hop on and load the engine.
