i guess ignorance is bliss, but when i restored my engine back in the mid 90s i had never heard of DZZP, or flat tappet 
problems and probably did not know what break in oil was.  i put it together on an engine stand and coated all the moving 
surfaces with assembly lube, which i now know contains zinc.  apparently the gods were looking out for me, as the engine 
has been in about 20 years, i use it most every day, and i have never had the head or the pan off.  rather be lucky than 
good any day.
