I bought lucas break in oil for my car, the engine supposedly has less than 200 miles on it. I picked up a pre-luber on ebay, got it cheap and thought I might try it out. It's an electric pump that pulls oil from the pan and pushes it into the gallery to get every oiled. Builds about 30 or 40 lbs oil pressure before you start the engine. Lots of arguments on the internet if it's worth it but I don't see any harm.

Use an old distributor.  Stick it in making sure it engages the oil pump.  Put a drill on it and spin it until you see oil going everywhere it should.  This ensures the oil pump is working as well.
