I'd use that on an ongoing basis, but I'd add a bottle of that ZDDP additive on the initial startup.

Sounds good, thanks. I should be putting it all back together in the coming couple weeks.

I have cleaned up the gasket surfaces, and installed the cam, timing gears, and lifters. All the lifters move freely and spin. Just waiting on the head to get back from the machine shop before I slap it the rest of the way together. I actually was able to get oil to pump up by turning the oil pump by hand with a screwdriver. It started spraying out of the timing gear oiler, and pumped up to the oil galley that supplies the head. Felt pretty good about that. I test fitted the oil pump/ distributor drive gear, and distributor but didn't fully bolt them back on because I will prime the oil system before I fire it up the first time.

I put the head back on and have now traveled about 150 miles... I need to go thorough and inspect/set up the carbs and check my timing advance, but the car is running and driving, and it appears the bottom end was not worn out completely yet. I'm thinking I may be running a little lean at idle, and my idle speed may be a little low. She goes down the highway great, but idles a little rough at times. I had to take off the power steering belt because my pump sounds like it has marbles in it. Anybody have any links to rebuild instructions for the zf pump that came in a 1969 164?
