Default What parts do I need to grease?

I just got my cams back from Delta and I'm ready to reassemble the engine and put it back in the car. What parts should I grease and how much do I use?

I've always used STP as a assembly lube without any problems. Painted it on all the parts Tim described above.

Make sure you change the oil and filter soon after the break-in though.

You only need to do the cams then.

And for the love of god! Don't use regular grease! Use assembly lube/grease please.

Since it's just cams then you could also just use motor oil if you're going to start it up soon.

And, since it's just a cam install then there is'nt really a "break in" for the motor. You will need to re-lash the valves in about 200-250 miles though.

Do not jag up the valve lash adjustments.

I use a "go/no go" system. For instance: the spec is 8 thou. You would then use a 7, an 8, and a 9 thou. feeler. Adjust the lash to 8 thou. Now the 7 should fit no problem, but the 9 should not. And remember that as you tighten the jam nut you will most likely tighten the lash so leave the feeler in there while you tighten them. Then try the 7 and the 9.

7, 8, and 9 thousandths was an example. Check the service manual for the proper lash clearances for your particular motor.

Good luck.

Really? Pull the motor and everything again?

Why didn't I have to do that when I bought the car and "broke in" the original cams?

No, you don't have to pull the motor. Just the valve covers.

Oh, I wouldn't imagine you'd have enough room to work in there with the motor in the car

You may have to set some valves from under the car. I found that easier atleast.
