i have found it works good to whipe every thing down with lacker thiner because it drys with no residu and then put some oil on the cam journals put the cam in and spin it then put a few drops on each journal of the cam then put the caps on.

i cleaned my cam with brake cleaner. then i used 20-50 weight oil to lube the journals and lobes. i believe it even says this in the ford manual. i even put a little oil on each of the valves/springs. i would highly recommend oiling it up! it would suck to fry a cam jounal from lack of lube. jmho.
