Oil everything during assembly. It might smoke a little when you first fire it off but better to have a little smoke than dry metal to metal contact anywhere. Use whatever oil you mix with your fuel or any good 2 stroke oil.

I like Marvel Mystery Oil for top end rebuilds. Smells better than regular oil and Grandpa trusted it for decades....good enough for me!
If more is better, then too much is just enough.
If you can't afford it, build it yourself.
