Main and Rod Bearing Prep

Just for general discussion. I am preparing to swap out the main and rod bearings in my 75 TR6. I did a plasti gage and the mains are at .003 so just out of spec. Slight scoring on the mains as in the pic, the top coat is wore down to the copper but really not too bad. Started out with changing the thrust washers and well now that the pan is off I fugured I would get the bearings in there, yep the crank is still in, the engine is in the car, the crank journals are really smooth.

I have new king tri metal bearings, steel copper and lead. Standard size

Main Bearing Set, Tri-Metal - GT6, TR250 & TR6 | Wishbone Classics

What is the best way to clean up the bearings before the assembly lube goes on? Is it nesseasry to wash the bearing when they are fresh out of the package?

Any general tips on bearing prep, fire away, what do you guys do?
