Same thing happened to me, unless the thing gets fired in a few hours, that stuff is gone. It runs right off. Get on summit and get some moly lube. Take a glob of it on a brush or your finger and stick it down through the lifter bores and "paint" the cam with it. Make sure you get a good couple mm layer of it on there. THen, take a good glob of it and get the bottom of your lifter with it (trying to avoid the oil return hole on the lifter). Of course, before you do any of this you want to soak your lifters for at least 24 hours in 30 weight oil.
I know this isn't the prescribed way of doing it, but I've done it before and had it work fine. The object is to coat the cam with lube. Any way you can get that done is fine-
