engine assembly lube

What would you guys recommend to use as a lube for engine assembly if the engine won't be started for a period of a month or two? If the typical motor oil mix (heavy weight) is used will cling to the parts long enough?

i used an assembly lube purchased at an auto parts store that was thick and clearish-red colored and was labeled as assembly lube. i've heard that an engine builder has his own formula that included a mix of motor oil and STP. i didn't store my engine for a long time.

I've used motor oil, white lithium grease and a purchased assembly lube. I like the assembly lube the most. I friend of mine uses one that is as thick as toothpaste, he loves it. He bought it from a motorcycle shop. Really thick, but it supposedly broke down easily once under use.
