I have seen two schools of thought regarding piston installation: 1. dunk the piston in a can of oil and 2. install dry(ish). In the past I have always used method 1 and not had a problem. But I have recently heard that too much oil in the ring grooves will result in it baking there once the engine is running and therefore one should be more sparing with the oil when putting pistons in. What would be the best way?
