Cam lube preference

Basic yes, but I have been using the Torco MPZ assembly lube for a long time with good results, I still use Isky rev lube/ARP for AN fittings, bolts. What does everyone else prefer/why?

MPZ is fine for bearings and such however, it is a bit "runny".  I mix it with a little bit of lithium grease and paint it on flat tappet lobes so, it stays, (looks just like Red Line assembly grease which I have also used successfully), and pour the rest of the quart over the lifters in the valley eventually going into the rest of the oil.

I have found that most every cam lube can work well when coating the cam lobes is done.

I usually use the Comp stuff if it's not going to sit long but as weird as it sounds I've used regular old STP at work with good luck too. it's thick and it's sticky as old hell. Wink

OK Mike Lil-C is old enough you need to approach mama with her favorite Razz

As for the Royal Purple I use their stuff in my trans. as pricey as it is lol, but I have not tried their cam stuff.

Wow, I wasn't sure of the MPZ when I started using it, I found it sticky& runny, but I had a habbit of putting Rev lube or white lithium on the lifter lobes, and pushrod tips, and used them in concert, never had a problem just wondering what is newer and better, I have not tried the Redline either, to old school stay with what works,

Not weird, if Richard endorsed them(STP) for all them years, it was more than money, just not readily available here. As for the comp stuff I might use it for warranty, if it wasn't gritty on my fingers, 1-uncomfortable tube, said forget the warranty.
