Ron Knaflic of Edwards Instruments demonstrates how to lubricate an Axial Flow valve.  This procedure should apply to any Axial (Thayer) valve.

Will that also work for a standard valve?

Nope.  Axial (Thayer) Valves are different animals from regular rotors.

If you search on the Osmun Brass site you should be able to find maintenance instructions on a rotary valve, including restringing if you have one that uses a string.  Bob Osmun is a horn player and is quite familiar with rotary valves.

I heard that they no longer recommend that Teflon coating stuff.. just oil for the valve!
