A1 Fly minor leak problems

Hello,
I recently acquired an Angel A1 Fly used, and am having 2 minor leaks:
1. When I screw the on/off ASA knob in all the way there is a leak their, but when it is screwed in all but a quarter-turn the leak is gone.
2. The velocity adjuster is leaking only when the velocity is turned up. Around 230 fps there is no leak, but the closer the gun gets to 300, the more it leaks, straight out that hole.
Any and all help is appreciated. I've already tried several PDF leak diagnosis but none of the links seem to work.
Thanks.

Check your ASA o-rings for the ASA leak. For the reg leak, the small piston o-ring or the bottom reg spool o-rings are the most likely cause.

This may seem like a total noob question, but should I lube my delrin bolt for the fly? I saw one maintainence video where it was advised and one where it was not.

Nope, keep the bolt DRY and CLEAN.

This 100%. The bolt is intended to be run dry. Greasing or oiling it will cause problems.

These are the Orings needed as Doc helped me identify earlier....Also the small mini reg piston is the same small oring.
