What's the consensus here about oiling plasma-moly rings during install?
I've googled it but there's so many varying opinions out there my head was spinning trying to sift through it all. Some say dunk the assembly in a bucket of 30w while others say to assemble it completely dry. I'd have concerns about marring and seizing issues with a dry assembly so I don't think I'd be comfortable with the dry technique. It also seems like dunking it in a bucket of oil would leave too much oil on the top of the pistons and rings and lead to unnecessary carbon buildup.
Right now I'm leaning towards the advice my step-brother gave me and was going to use a light coating of mercon V transmission fluid. Was going to lightly coat the piston rings, ring lands and put a light coat on the skirts with the wrist pin getting a coat of 30w.
What's the preferred method that you guys use when doing this? Thanks for any help or insight about this.
