how to properly maintain Eblade 2 cocker..the right way??

Hi, I just recently got my hands on an E2 electro cocker as a backup / mess around gun that hasn't been fired in a long while. My question is, how should I actually maintain it correctly, like which grease should I use and on what parts exactly?

I've searched and read multiple threads; however there seems to be an ongoing disagreement as to which type of grease / oil I should actually be using on an E2 electro cocker. Some threads say drop 1 oil into ASA, while other's say dont. I also read somewhere to only use DOW33 on everything, without any oil, etc. So my question is...which should I actually be listening to and how should I keep the cocker rightfully maintained?

P.S. My first electro cocker ever owned...currently / previously owned G6R's, Ego's, etc, so i'm new here

Usually people put a few drops of oil into the asa and cycle the marker a few times to get the oil through the system. Mostly I just use oil for the ram and bolt o-rings. I'd use DOW 33 on the solenoid gasket, solenoid spool, and orings located in the regs.

oil in the asa works great, and its whats suggested in the manual. if you dont have any paintball branded oil you can use 3-in-1 or air tool oil...also recommended in the manual lol.

a couple drops every 5 cases or so is usually plenty, and keeps all the pneu's, valve, and bolt with a little oil on them.

youll only need dow33 on the gasket, and thats one of those parts that "as long as its not leaking dont touch it" kind of things since they can be a pain to get seated sometimes. but thats also something you will only have to worry about if the gun has sat around for years and dried up.
