Crower Solid Roller, Initial treatment...

What are you guys doing with your solid rollers when you first install them?

The reason I ask is because I originally intended on soaking them in some mineral spirits before soaking them in motor oil and then installing them.

Well, my Crowers came with a card that says DO NOT wash the lifters before you install them. Something about taking some coating off the roller.

What is the proper treatment? Especially for Crower brand.

I've been running Crower solid roller lifters in my small block for years. I pulled them out of the box, wiped off any fibers from the box, slathered them in redline assembly lube and dropped them in the block.

I put more than 10,000 miles on one set of lifters with a .630" lift cam.
