I have heard several different methods of putting assembly lube on bearings, i.e. putting it on both sides of the bearing, just the side with rotating parts, soaking the whole thing for a day before putting them on....What is the correct method of seating these with assembly lube? (Any tips on installation would be appreciated!) Thanks in advance for clearing this up!
Engine details:
96 D16Y8, N/A
King bearings w/eagle rods and srp pistons 10:5:1

Lube only the crank side of bearing. Backside must be as clean and dry as possible, otherwise you could get wrong bearing-crank clearance and possibility of bearing spin.

From what I know, just put some oil on your finger and dab it on there.
If first start-up isn't happening for a while (a few weeks), then use assembly lube instead.
But I don't think it's necessary to soak them, or even coat both sides.
Just dab some on the side where the movement is (where the crankshaft rests) and you should be fine.
