    Thanks to everyone for there replies. I have progressed........i cleaned and cleaned the cornet and noticed that when i re oiled valves all started sticking so i started a fresh, cleaned the oil (ultra pure) from the valves and cylinders and they are up to now working perfect. The cornet obviously does not liketoo much oil, the question is, is this aceptable? and is there a very thin oil that i could just put a small amount on the valve? (i have tried blue juice, bach, ultra pure and Dennis Wick)

    Hetman makes valve oil in three grades, based on how tight the tolerances are.
