In the ¨good old days¨ I coated all contact surfaces with STP during assembly. I am sure that it was better than a dry assembly but:eek:hnoes for the cam lobes, big ends, etc.

Now I always use the MFGs recommended lube or a Moly lub if the manufacturer does not suggest a specific lubricant.

The damage that can be done to the rotating stock on initial startup is beyond belief.

Renault, (do not get mad... they build the engines for our GP2 cars), made some impressive seminars with computer enhanced photos of mechanical failures caused by improper ¨first¨startup. Our engines are worth over $100K and come with a 3 season warranty unless they are ¨handled improperly¨ you can see everybody's interest in how the engines are run in.
