Just coat the lobes in oil. You are correct, no break-in on a roller cam.

Depends on the bearing clearances and a few other things, but a lot of my engines run 10W30.

Just depends on how much you have to grind. You can take away from the strength of the rocker if you grind too much.

May be best to go back to a 5/16 pushrod instead of grinding into a set of new rockers. What do you think Brent ?
