    Assembly Lube

    Are you guys that build all the time using assembly lube, or just pumping the oil system up in the drowned mode before you fire up the engine for the first time. I am thinking I should use the lube because I am using all new bearings on the crank and cam.

    I certainly used the Topas grease on the cam but just oiled the bearings on the crank, balancer shaft and con rods when i rebuilt my T-X motor last year. Worked fine for me, just used the right oil for the 4-tec.

    Rebuild oil as well as drowned mode.

    Crank her over for a lot of time, but dont roast the starter.

    Too much lube is better at this critical time.
