Guess I've always done it wrong, as I soak my lifters overnight before dropping them in. I do wipe them off and use assembly lube on the outside before dropping them in though.
I've got 13 yrs./20,000 miles on my 427 now, and 4500 miles on my 327, and both were done this way with flat tappet hydraulic lifters.
