I have used the Lubriplate white assembly grease for decades. I use it primarily on the main and rod bearings, rocker tips and adjusters, a little tiny bit on the top of the lifter. The thing is you cant glob it on. It squeezes out and flings into and onto the pan the moment the motor fires up. You just need to coat the bearings lightly so they are protected on start up. Its a hard thing to do, just coat lightly, lol, because the natural inclination is more is better, but not so here. And I agree with HRL, use too much of that stuff and you get it laying pretty thick in the pan. So just a lubricating coat.
For a cam, I use what comes with the cam. Schneider Cams has their version, other makers have theirs. I never use the lubriplate for the cam. I am no oil and grease expert but cam break in grease is different then assembly grease. So I would say use a major cam manufacturers cam break in lube. Same deal though. Intuitively you want to glob it on but nope, just get a some on the lobes, otherwise the excess flings off and makes a mess in the motor and it does not break down all that well.
I have a 235 motor in my garage that I built in 1985. I forget now why, but a couple of years ago I needed to pull the pan from that motor. It has a Chet Herbert regrind. Remember the ads in the back of hot rod, any cam any grind 39.95. That regrind was one of the better cams I have ever had but like all things, Chet passed and so did his regrinds. But yep, the Chet Herbert cam grease that I liberally gooped all over that cam in 85 was still in the bottom of the pan after countless countless oil changes.
