|English term or phrase: worn-in|
|Here is the sentence:|
"New gears or gears that have been realined should be thoroughly **worn** in at low power before being subjected to the maximum tooth pressure of full power."
I somehow understand what **worn-in** means, but I need help from you, technically savvy, as to how you rephrase it. Is **warm up" close or I am off the mark?
Wearing-in is the same as breaking-in the new gears.
It is not warming up, much more than that. It is allowing the gears to go through minor adjustments in reaction to each other.
Here is one description: www.4x4now.com/gt0999.htm
All new cars (or gearboxes) need breaking-in, and the handbooks always provide appropriate instructions for the particular model.

|Since I am looking for a short phrase, this comes most handy. Also convincing is many web site citings. Yes many people around here in the American west breaking horses, but sure enough engines are broken in and become docile too.|
