Something that I was advised to do was to take of the cam box covers and apply a special lubricant to the lobs to stop them wearing badly when you first start the engine. The stuff I used was:

The second thing to do is whilst you have the cambelt off. Mark the position of the aux pulley so that you can put it back in the correct place later. Use a cordless drill to drive the centre of the aux pulley to get the oil pump and system primed before turning over the engine. Check the oil pressure guage to see that it's worked. Then put the aux pulley back in the previously marked spot and refit the cambelt. You should be safe to start the engine without risking oil starvation.
