Hello. Welcome to the forum. Please use punctuation between sentences as that will make your posts easier to read and understand.

The best thing to do is study your marker. Did you buy it brand new? Read the manual cover to cover and follow all directions. Simple as that. If you bought a used one and didn't get a manual with it, you can easily find it multiple places on the internet.

If you bought it used, unless you know the previous owner cleaned it well......once you have familiarized yourself with the manual, I suggest inspecting it to see if it is clean or not. Unless it is VERY dirty, you probably don't need to take it apart and clean the inside. If you do, be VERY careful about that. After removing the bolts, wrap the marker loosely in a towel when you separate the two halves to avoid parts flying out and you losing some small pieces.

Common errors: Losing the tiny spring that is in the front sight, and putting the ball detent in backwards. STUDY YOUR DIAGRAM.

If all you need is some lube, put a few drops in the hole where you put on the CO2 tank, air it up and fire a couple of shots. That should pretty well lube the necessary parts of the marker.

is it a 98.... 98 custom or 98 custom act???
either way the 98 is the easiest to maintain.. keep her oiled up and that is about it.....

also one thing you can do from start.. is to get to know your marker.. open her up (be careful of the springs that will shoot out and figure out where everything goes...
then polish the internals... google it.... or 98og.net and search it...
basically creating less friction inside for the balls to let loose (oh goodness that just sounds wrong!!!!)

enjoy man.. here is my 98 custom...

I have a couple different methods. Keep in mind I tinker with my gear and do things just because I can.

If my 98s have been sitting with no use since I cleaned them last, I will just put a couple drops of Gold Cup marker oil into the ASA or remote nipple and dry fire them a few times. That lubes the valve internals and on two of them it oils the Palmer's regulator.

When I have to tear my markers down to clean them I have a nice method that works for me. I use a mix of Dow 33 and Gold Cup. I put a thin film of Dow 33 on all the moving parts. I follow that with a drop or two of Gold Cup and smear up the goop. I do the same to the rear of the receiver halves where the hammer travels. Once everything is cleaned, lubed, and re-assembled I put a drop of oil in the ASA and dry fire.

One thing to note is that when you are turned into a smurf, human pumpkin, walking pile of Elmer's glue, Slimer, etc. it is best to clean the marker that day. My one exception is when I am at a two day event. I will wait until Monday because I do not want to tear down my markers when there are plenty of targets for me to shoot at.
