Well the manufacture says to not to use anything on the roller cam since it s a roller cam... I've heard different over the years .. From what I am led to beleive you need some sort of lube on the bearing section of the cam..
So what should I use. Assembly lube or will some 10W30 work?
Thin coat of assembly lube on the walls of the lifter bore, soak the lifter in oil as mentioned above, and pop it in. You don't want the assy lube on the roller or cam, you do want it between the lifter body and bore.
