I usually have a rebuild waiting to be used, after sitting a while the oil seeps away from where you need it.

After rebuilding my little OHC engines I leave the valve cover loose.
Seconds before starting engine for the first time I pour oil all over the cam from end to end.

Great idea, depending on how long an engine will be sitting i usually use red assemly oil when i do a head job, its very thick and will keep lubed (for a decent amount of time)
