I'm sure that everyone has their own preferences.

Mine:

Ultra Blue (not regular blue) for anything in contact with oil. Oil pan, front of intake, etc.

Black: In contact with water, other general use. Water pump, etc.

Ultra Copper: High heat applications. This stuff is so good I no longer use header gaskets. Just lay a thick bead around each port and let cure overnight before installing.

For assembly:
Red Line Assembly Lube. It's a thin red grease. Sticks to the parts very well. Use it on bearings, cam.

Rings: two stroke engine oil. Like for a weed trimmer. Reason: It will totally burn up, leaves no carbon in the ring lands like regular oil can if you use too much. With this oil, you don't have to worry about using too much. I cringe when I see people dunk the whole piston /rings in oil and then install.

Other: straight 30W oil for roller lifters, oil pump, timing chain.

I also use a fair amount of Loc Tite, mainly red, especially since I put the transbrake and two step in my car. The vibrations will find any loose bolt in a hurry.

Later,

David Cole

Permatex red, or copper for everything. I use the copper on my header flanges , but I stil use a gasket. Lay a bead around the outside edge of the flange and let is set up, then install the header. No one makes a "good" gasket for my headers that fits the flanges worth a d**n. The hole in the gasket is bigger than the flange, so new gaskets leak right away if I dont "glue" them up a little first.
My engine builder uses Marvels mystery oil on the rings, but the last one I "threw" together was a project in hurry, and I used WD-40 on them. It seems to have worked fine. Not sure if I will try that again or not. I like the 2 stroke oil idea though.

For assembly, Royal Purple assembly lube.

agree with the gus using permatex. sometimes i find a reason to use indian head gasket sealer. often i have to use something to "glue" the intake gasket in place so it doesnt move and partially block the intake port on the head when the intake goes on.

When I worked at a GM garage, I loved their supplies. The carb cleaner was excellent and their glass cleaner was the best I've ever used.
