For the main bearings I used Lubri Plate No 105 Motor Assembly Grease. I plan to use this material on the rod bearings also.

Should I also use this material when assemblig the rings on the pistons, the pistons and for a coating on the cylinder bore rather than coating them with motor oil ?

We have always used Lubriplate on everything except the rings and wrist pins , which we would submerge in a small bucket of motor oil then let the excess drip off for a few minutes .

Bigger concern was wiping the cylinder with a clean white rag and solvent . Fine honing grit will get trapped in the cross hatch where the oil is suppose to be . Wiping with an oily rag will not dislodge the fine particles .The grit will erode the moving parts and shorten the lifespan . Wipe the cylinder with motor oil after cleaning .

Just to emphasize Ken's post, I don't remember where, but in one of my shop manuals or in the instructions that came with a sleeve kit, there was a strong emphasis on washing the cylinders with soapy water after honing because oil will not remove the fine particles.

I'd just add that most shop manuals recommend against using a solvent as it simply embeds the grit and makes it harder to remove. Wash with hot soapy water and rinse well with clean water.
