Use what you have for grease a good auto grease works for me. The oil I used to assemble the engine was penz 10w/30 I think its been in the engine assembly can for a while might even be a syn. Don't know for sure oil is important no oil is a disaster looking for a place to happen. you could use the mermix oil but I'd most likely use engine oil and weight / grade to me is not important if I'm building and starting it the same day or in a day or two. For longer storage there is an assembly lube to use but I don't have any on my shelves so I use plain engine oil.
