    Absolutely use a piston bullet. Contact @herman who makes them-you may as well get his o-ring insertion tool too.
    Custom Scuba Tools MK 5 and MK 10 Piston Stem O-ring Tool

    See this for rebuild instructions (MK5 but close enough for government work.)

    I don't see a problem. Just make sure you place the grease into the first stage when it is under pressure. If you don't, the first time you pressurize the first stage, you'll have grease all over the place. Some may get into the low pressure area, and then into the LP hose too, as the pressure will make it squirt all over the place. Here's the Safety Data Sheet:
