Engines that I have assembled in the past I have used a mixture of engine oil and molybdenum disulphide.
Seemed to work OK.

A few things have been happening in the last few months:

I borrowed a dial indicator gauge to start getting the short block assembled. The end float was a bit outside of spec (.008 to .009"), so I ordered in some +003 thou thrust bearings. When checking the end float I noticed crank had some strange marks on the middle main journal. After getting drmini and GR to have a look it turns out they are marks from being straightened at the crank shop.

The first set of big end bearings (County bearings in a King box) I bought turned out to be junk, so I got some new ACL bearings which look much better. The main bearings are also County brand, so I'll get in a new set of ACL ones to replace them (ACL weren't making them when I bought them over a year ago)
Brand new County big end bearings:

I've also picked up the 12G202 head during the Rylstone trip. The list is:
27.2mm / 1.07" exhaust valves
31.75mm / 1.25" inlet valves
Unleaded exhaust seats
Bronze valve guides
Combustion chamber & port work
Modification of inltake manifold to suit head
Skimmed flat
