Default Nelson 1 ˝ hp advice needed

If things go as planned this weekend, on Saturday I will be putting the Nelson (I believe to be a model “B”) Monarch Engine 1 ˝ hp back together again. This engine is a very early one, before grease caps on the mains, it has oil valleys (?) on the main bearings. What oil is recommended where and what grease to use where. I can visualize the best would be ten different lubes for the ten different applications on the engine.
My first thoughts would be to use a chainsaw bar oil on the cam gear because bar oil is so sticky, it would stay longer. But then a wheel bearing grease would seem to be even better.
What is the preferred weight of oil?
What is the preferred grease type?
Thank you

For open oil cups, I use SAE-90 gear lube. It comes in quart containers with a closeable oil spout top. Cotton string in the oil galley will help hold some back to dribble out while operating the engine.
