What do you consider assembly lube? I've just use engine oil myself.
I've seen white chassis(?) grease used. Some one once suggested using
STP to me (is that stuff still around?) but I suspect that STP would
tend to block oil passages, especially when its cold. Understand that
it's a terrific hand cleaner though.

Another suggestion I've heard is to install pistons "dry" to facilitate
rapid ring seating. I'm not sure I could bring myself to do this, at least
not in an engine paid for out of my own pocket.
