350sbc

i'm replacing the main and rod bearings on my '79 350sbc 4bolt.

My question is, i dipped the bearings in oil before I put them in, is that sufficient or do I need a special lube on there like I do on my cam.

Also, do i need or should I use some kind of thread locker on my main bolts and also my rod bolts...or for that matter, any other bolts in my motor?

thanks once again,
steve

Keep the backs of the bearing dry to prevent spinning them. Lock tight compound isn't nessacery but if if you feel frogy... jump. Wipe a liitle oil on the bearing surface and prelube before atart up.
