Is this a part that requires lubrication of any kind ? this machine is less than two months old and upon pulling a shot the lever is a bit tougher to move all of a sudden and it squeaks.

Yes it is. The links provided by Randy will help you out.

It can be worst or accelerated by chemical backflushes.
