I use a tube of either CRC or Sta-Lube assembly grease and a Plews oiler filled with engine oil with maybe some STP mixed in.

Nothing special.

Absolutely. the oiling system is primed with an oil pump drive tool before the start up.  After that I have an Accusump which I keep charged up so when it sits for a time I just open the valve and pressurize the oil system before I fire it up. If I am running it hard I keep the gate open and the Accusump is a safety net.

Lubriplate 105 has always been what I've used for rod and main bearings, rocker pivots, etc.
