You probably should retorque the head at least 3 times, or until it no longer takes any further tightening. First retorque after perhaps a hour of running. 2nd after perhaps 10-20 hours. 3rd at the end of the season. Or at least that's been my practice for years.

I'd install lifters lubed with clean motor oil. And some oil in the cylinder block lifter bore and perhaps an assembly lube on the face of the tappet body where it contacts the camshaft, if disassembly went that far.

And don't forget to check the clearance to the stem.
