I run the bolts through a die, tap out the holes in the block, clean the bolts in solvent and blow dry, then use motor oil on the threads, and after oiling, let them sit on paper towels to remove excess oil. make sure you get oil on the bottom of the bolt head (the contact surface to the block), and MOST important is to use air to blow any oil, antifreeze, or what have you, out of the holes in the block. Make sure you measure the bolt length after removing them to make sure they aren't stretched beyond what's allowed.
