I like BG assembly lube, I get it at a real local auto parts store, you should be able to find it. I've built plenty of engines with a good torque wrench, just remember to put some good lube under the bolts or nuts. Read the directions in the ring package a see what is recommended for the rings, some call for lube and others do not. I believe the oil pump bolt is 7/16", so torque it to 65 lbs. The pickup bolts are 5/16" so go 19-20 lbs.
