Just buy a jug of like super tech oil from wally world, its cheap and will be fine for the lifters and the cam install lube.

Do it, it lubricates the bearings and internals so that when u first initially start the engine its not running dry but when you torque down the rockers it will squeeze the oil out of the plunger but the bearings and internals will still be lubbed up and ready to rock... I would suggest using something thick and sticky like 15-40
only soaking them wont do much. submerse them in oil and do you best to "pump" them up with your fingers and get some air out to kinda prime them.
That's what I was taught to do about 20 years ago and still do. They may be roller lifters now instead of the old flat tappet ones then but they are still hydraulic (unless your going VERY extreme). Air and hydraulics don't work together.
