I have a 350 that I rebuilt back in April and it has been setting since getting ready to put it in the truck and get it started. I used plenty of assembly lube during assembly but should I squirt some down each cylinder and turn it over by hand a few times or should the lube still do it's job. I would prefer to err on the side of caution or would I stand a chance of breaking a ring with all of the lube?

The lube will do it's job but also nothing wrong with putting a bit of oil in the cylinders and hand cycling the engine. I prefer an engine fogger for this, you can buy it at the parts store or even a wallymart but regular oil will work too. Just leave the plugs out while you turn the engine over - that lets the excess oil escape. You really should prime the oil system before you fire it up but it's optional.
