It might not hurt to place a little engine oil in the cylinders before you put the plugs in and turn the engine over by hand after you've oil primed the system as that way there will be better lubrication on the cylinder walls as soon as the engine fires. Not to say that it will be an issue but penetrating oils are very thin and wouldn't be as good as a nice thin coating of engine oil on the cylinders. Then leave the engine sit for a bit to allow the excess oil to slip by the rings before you try firing it up for the first time.
