No, I am not saying that. I just like to have more fuel delivery than is necessary. It has been my experience that in fuel delivery having more available is always the better choice.

I have assembled several engines using Calico coated pistons. I have always oiled the skirts, pins and rings. I even oil up the cylinder walls. I cant see any reason not to oil them up.
