Kroil works wonders. Make sure you lube the threads with some grease when you put it back together. Stainless on stainless threads will gall horribly.

When I lube the threads with some grease, what type should I use? I need a recommendation for an off the shelf Ace Hardware product. I know that wrong types of oil have caused HPA explosions. What would be a generic form of the right stuff? I just want to use this for the threads on the velocity adjustment nut.

The pressure from your tank has already been regulated down. At 800 up to 1200 PSI entering the marker, depending on what regulator you are using and how it is set, there is no potential for an explosion. Never use oil on your tank or your tank regulator, but it will be OK for any other Automag parts.

You want grease on the threads and on the spring pack. Pick up some of this...great stuff, cheap and not terribly difficult to find.

Hmm...I've never had a velocity nut stick like your detailing and have never greased the threads. You must have mashed it down onto the spring pack and that's what you were fighting all along.

I believe the instructions on the old valves suggested you use anti seize on the threads and spring pack, that’s what I always used…

yeah, I like anti-seize on the adjuster. I like bearing grease on the spring pack. It smells original and is good for water. Not too much so that it doesn't get into the relief plug. I don't mind using superlube grease on them either, but I usually get back to the other two.
