Default Camshaft Plunger !!!!

I'm trying to help a friend "reassemble" his Dad's '31 Murray sedan. The motor has been out of the car for years. He has reinstalled the engine and took the time to put a new timing gear in it. Yesterday, on the first attempt (in years) to start the engine... it fired right-off but with a very loud noise (according to his telephone description). I'm suspecting he did not grease the Camshaft Plunger ( Les Andrews failed to mention this !!) and my question to you experts ... can the timing cover be removed without removing the radiator? ... I think there's about 10 bolts if you include those from the oil pan. AND what kind of grease do you recommend to "lather" the plunger with ???

Many thanks.. I love this site !!!! IndyA
