What weight oil?

I usually use a product named Neverseize.

Anyone else use anything else on their head bolts? Serious question, as I am just about to bolt my Cleveland back together and would like some handy hints/tricks.

I usually use a little locktite on my big end nuts and neversieze on my main bolts.

Tips would be good.

Re: Head bolt tension

Usually you would only use either 30 weigth oil or moly lube.
I listed the torque for 30 weight, and when using moly, it is less due to
less friction.
Not sure on moly, but approx 85 pounds.
