Cam bearings have been replaced.

Build will come together over the next few weeks in-between work, holidays and so on. I have cam lube for everything but the bores (it says don't use there) so I gather I'm just supposed to smear those with engine oil before installing the pistons?

I've also been reading about running in procedures and many state that the engine must not be allowed to run too lean or too rich - how on earth are you supposed to manage that without running the engine to time it and setup the carb(s)?!
