Clevite's "Bearing Guard" assembly lube is specially formulated with an Extreme Pressure (EP) rating to provide proper lubrication for internal engine components during assembly, and for the first crucial moments of operation after engine start-up. If you are using Clevite bearings, this is best (factory matched) assembly lube you can get. Highly recommended!
Whenever you order bolts, don't forget a tube of ARP assembly lubricant. ARP's new "Ultra-Torque" is a special new blend of PFTE lube which ensures the correct torque will be reached on the first pull, so there is no longer any need to "cycle" the fastener (or loosen and tighten it several times), which has been the case with ARP's regular "Moly Lube" This lube is essential to get correct torque on the head, rod and main bolts, and it doesn't hurt to put it on misc other engine bolts as well. One tube is usually enough to do 4 or 5 complete engines, so it's a good investment to keep around the shop.
When building an engine, don't forget a packet of Total Seal's special piston ring assembly lubricant. This is essential for proper break-in and protection of the rings. One packet is enough to do one complete engine.
Along with the purchase of any Comp cam and lifters, we also strongly recommend using Comp's engine break in oil additive. This is it essential to make sure your cam and lifters are fully covered under Comp's warranty. It's a well known fact that, due to EPA regulations and other reasons, over the last few years oil manufacturers have removed the Zinc and other additives from their motor oil. If you try to break in a brand new cam and just add regular "off the shelf" motor oil from your local parts store, it is VERY likely you will have a failure. You must add this additive to the oil to replenish the zinc which is no longer included by the oil manufacturers. This works with synthetics, blended, and standard petroleum oils. In our own engines, we usually get a couple extra bottles to keep on the shelf and add one at every oil change. It's cheap insurance.
Comp Cams has taken great pains to develop what they feel to be the best line of lubricants available to protect your engine before startup and during break-in. Used by professional engine builders throughout the country, their valve train assembly spray sprays on as a thin penetrant, then tacks up as it dries which allows it to get into small areas (such as between the rollers of needle bearings.) Then once it tacks up it sticks to the surface, making sure your valve train has full lubrication upon startup, preventing any galling or scuffing upon first contact. One 6oz aerosol can is enough to do one engine. CAN BE SHIPPED BY REGULAR GROUND ONLY TO U.S. ADDRESSES ONLY.
Comp Cams has taken great pains to develop what they feel to be the best line of lubricants available to protect your engine before startup and during break-in. Used by professional engine builders throughout the country, their cam and lifter lube is a red tacky oil which sticks to the surface and won't bleed off. This is ideal for engines which will sit for any amount of time between initial startup and when the cam and lifters were installed and lubed. This ensures your cam and lifters have full lubrication upon startup, preventing any galling or scuffing upon first contact. One 4oz bottle is enough to do one engine.
Our Torco Engine Assembly lube is highly recommended for use on pistons and pins during assembly. It's a high pressure lube formula with anti-wear, anti-friction and anti shock chemistries. And it's oil soluable, which means it will protect your engine after initial assembly, and during first startup, after which it is washed away by your regular engine oil as the engine is broken in. Use a dime sized dab on each side of the piston skirt about a half inch up from the bottom of the piston, and coat the piston pin during assembly with the pistons and connecting rods. One ounce tube is enough to do one complete engine.
Use our premium Permatex BLUE Loctite on all applications which need to be held in place, but are still intended to be broken loose from time to time. We always use this on certain parts of the engine which tend to come loose occaisionally due to harmonics, even when they are torqued correctly during assembly. Big Block Mopars are famous for this on torque coverter bolts, rocker arm hardware, cam sprocket bolts, etc. We highly recommend it for those applications. One small tube is usually enough to do one complete engine. Made in the USA!
Use our premium Permatex RED Loctite on all applications which need to be held in place near permanently, and you don't expect to need to break loose. One small tube is usually enough to do one complete engine. Made in the USA!
