I've been using the Royal Purple assembly lube. I like it. I still use the old Comp Cams paste stuff on flat tappet cams and lifters.

I used Brad Penn sae30wt break-in oil on my mains and rods when I put my 466 bottom end together. I'm going to use comp cam pro for the solid flat tappet cam and lifters.I remember my dad rebuilding a 200 six in our front yard many moons ago and he used the old STP that came in the metal can.

Oil works fine, but I think the grease that dissolves in oil is better insurance. Especially if you roll the engine over by hand a lot during assembly.

i use Lucas oil stabilizer mixed 1/2 and 1/2 in a squirt bottle for rods and mains and lucas I find to thick and sticky of an assembly lube doesnt allow me to rotate the crank freely and i could miss a potential problem if i had one.
