  2. Never soak your lifters, just coat with a good cam lube prior to installation
  3. When replacing your camshaft with a higher lift cam always buy matching springs.
  4. Remember to use Plastigage on your bearings to make sure of a proper oil clearance 
  5. When installing any bearing Do not Attempt to Polish The Bearing Running
    Surface With Any Type Of Abrasive Pad Or Paper.
  6. Use an Engine Break-in Oil Additive such as Comp Cam's #159
