    assembly lubricant?

    Refreshing a bottom end due to oil consumption. Refreshed the heads not that long ago and used redline assembly lube which did its job. Noticed there was miller assembly lube which sounds a bit more oily, anybody used it? or should i stick to graphogen for crank, rod bearings.

    just interested in what folks prefer to use.

    cylinder bores and rings just light coat of engine oil?

    Thanks.

    I've always used this for bearings and cam journals etc.

    For cylinder bores, rings and pistons I use a generous helping of fresh engine oil.

    Never had a single issue with using the above.

    plain old mineral oil if your coating bores, etc. IMO

    we have used the Millers assembly lube for years with no issues and we also stock the Royal Purple variants

    always deals available 0191-4103770
