Dradee We used to use lubriplate it basically looked like white grease,SBC cams I use molly grease on the lobes just because of there poor cam oiling design and then change the filter and oil next day.

camaroman7d I have heard of the moly plugging up filters too (I have never had it happen to me).

I used come clear stuff on a few engines and I really liked it, but I cannot find it anywhere (maybe for good reason). I have plenty of the moly lube in the garage. I just saw a can of white grease sitting there and had a flash back, wondering if anyone still used it.

I guess I will stick to the moly stuff. I didn't even think about the higher melting point, this is both good and bad. If you think about it your oil should never get hot enough to melt it.

As usual great input.

Jmark White grease has a very high melting point and won't usually melt in the hot oil, leaving it to possibly plug up the filter. Rare, but I've heard of it happening if you use tooooo much and it makes its way to the filter.

Permatex makes a great assembly lube for mains and rods. The Moly lube paste is the best for cams and has a very low melting point. On my current rebuild, it began mixing with the oil during the priming of the engine. We had the intake off and could see it blending in with the oil.

Cstraub As I also was first taught with the white grease, it worked but with todays technology in assembly greases and there ability to protect parts under high loads you are much better off to use an assembly specific lubricant. The Torco stuff works very well. . . messy. . .but works good.

Assembly Lube/ White Grease??

Ok Guys, I have been building engines/playing with cars for a long time. Back when I first started my shop teacher taught us to use white grease for assembly lube. I built a few of my first engines like that (with no problems). I soon started using moly or other types of lubes that were packaged as "Assembly Lube". (reading to many magazines).

Does anyone still use white grease?

This just came to mind because I am about to start putting togther another short block and I had a flash back.

Are there any pros or cons?
