Mmm, a basket case! Just picked up one of those myself a little while ago... I use the big blaster can of wd-40 to flush out the bottom end and bearings when I do mine, then lube them up good with a hand oiler full of good motor oil. On the overhead cams I use some assembly lube on the cam journals and lobes to keep it lubed on the first start. Always pop the valve cover and add a few cap fuls of oil, then pop an oil line lose and turn the engine over with a drill until its primed before you do the first start up, and you should be good to go.
Whatever is currently in one piece... 400 prairie with stuff, 300 fourtrax, 500 sportsman, yz 125...
