....I did get the kit with the tool for removing the valve from the video I say...Not sure if I have something to remove the valve stem...
I don't think you should use Tri-flow on it. That stuff has solvents in it which might harm the seals. Not sure about that, but you should research it a little before continuing use. If it is bad stuff, just start oiling with a non-detergent oil, pump, shoot, repeat, and flush the bad stuff out.

Does anyone know how many pumps that vintage of 101 should use? I have reading the number varies and have been doing 7. thxBTW, I'm an expert on golf equipment if anyone has questions about that!
If it shoots, holds air, leave it alone. Those 101's are a bugger to reseal.They have an asbestos seal, on the front of the valve. If you don't get both surfaces absolutely clean, you'll play merry h-e-l-l getting a seal. Same thing with the seal between the valve and pump tube. If it were me, I'd just keep shooting it, let the gunk blow out.
Matt, 101s and 102s are great rifles, accurate with good power. Leave it alone for the time being, run it wet, and reseal when it needs it. In the meantime, ENJOY!
I would say to keep using it. Yes there is some black gunk in there, but there is in all old pumpers. Shooting it will get a lot of it out, & help its performance. ALWAYS store it with 1-2 pumps in it.
