Assembly lube on fresh bearings
Anyone do this to ensure that the engine has enough lube while the oil is finding its way to where it needs to go? I did this on cars all the time, but not on the 2 engines I have rebuilt so far.

I will just let everyone know what the GM wixom plant in MI uses, which builds all the Corvette ZO6 and ZR-1 engines. Gear Oil
The current industrial engine distributor i work for has long ties with GM and was invited on a manfucaturing tour.
I also know they build all industrial and marine 5.0L and 5.7L engines using the same method.
Some of the best assembly lube i've heard of is the Joe Gibbs engine assembly lube, this has been reccomended to us by multiple renouned engine shop across the US.

I have always just used the engine oil on assembly.
crank it for a minuite to pump all the oil through then kick it over... never had any problems on rec or race set ups JMO
