Yeah, I think this is the route I will go. I have used STP, it worked but who knows. Enough people on this site and CO have used and liked it. My old boss used Lubriplate but the idea of grease, I know probably just in my head.
I would agree. To an extent. Now the real question is if you used the "correct" lube for your anticipated time frame, then why do people still prime engines? You shouldn't have to do both. Either use oil to assemble and prime it before starting, or use thicker stuff and simply start it up when you're ready.My way of thinking on this is time. If the engine will be installed and running in a week oil is fine. In a month something a little stickier is needed. A year and it becomes very important what you use.
If you build for others and have no say in when the engine is installed and run you just might want the "best".
