My camshaft run in directions say to use a non-friction modified mineral oil 20w-50 grade. No synthetic oils are recommended for flat tappet camshafts. They recommend Shell Helix Plus (15-50) oil for run in and normal use for my camshaft. They also gave me a bottle of comp cams engine break in oil additive. To pre lube I use an aeroflow remote filter adaptor and an electric pump to pump oil through the engine and then swap it to pump back through the pump and pickup. Also remember to fill the filter before start up.
