On the triple valve spring setup we used on round track engines, we ran stock springs for the 2K RPM cam break in, and then installed the heavy springs for dyno runs and racing.

Try some assembly lube on a test piece along with grease and see how much is still on it in a week. GM EOS is no longer available, but it was very good break-in additive.

There were a lot of things I used to get in the 70s that are long gone today. For one, you could buy a very nice 1967 Vette for about $3500 and a 55 T-Bird for under $2000. I paid $1500 for one with all 3 tops, electric seat/windows, town & country radio and a working factory tach in 1973. Long gone.

A few months ago I facilitated the sale of a 68 Dodge Charger with a 440 engine and a 4 speed to a buyer in Australia for $90K. The seller only took a $10K loss on his investment in the restoration!
