What to lube on Termite?

I acquired what I believe to be a Carter Termite. I took it apart to clean it up as it needed it. Not having worked on one before, I thought I'd post here to find out exactly what should be lubed before I put it back together...assuming the o-rings...anything else that should get some lube?

Is triflow good enough? Only other thing I have on hand is Dow 55....but do have a shop a few miles down the road...not sure what they are selling though...

...thanks in advance...

...also added a pic of the marker itself...the grips on there are temp as I'm in the process of making wood grips...

i'd put one drop of oil on the cup seal and power tube and that's it. leave the hammer and bolt dry. that's me...others may have other suggestions.

Thanks for the input.

Can I adjust velocity through the barrel, by changing springs, both, niether...seems pretty much like a typical Nelson type valve...it was shooting around 275 pretty consitently, though...which is where I normally set fps at...

I put a slight sheen of light oil on everything shown, do make it heavy or it may inhibit the valve from functioning properly and you could lose velocity.

I also like a light coat of oil on the hammer/bolt/powertube. Not much. I use one of those tiny nail polish bottles and a cap that has bristles on it, like a little brush, which I apply a little oil to each of the parts with. The only reason I did this in the first place though was all the friction I could feel when pumping, so if you don't have a scraping-feel like pump stroke you might want to try leaving everything dry (other than cupseal and o-rings).

LOL...those are just temp grips velcroed on (screw holes do not line up so velcro to the rescue) to keep paint, dirt, etc from getting into the trigger assembly...I'm in the process of making a set of wood grips for it....just haven't got around to finishing them yet...

....thanks folks...I just did a very light coating on everything and all is well :=)
