Default Maintaining a Silk Fly Line/ Bamboo wont seat

Okay so I recently bought two pfluegers and one has old silk line on it... I took it to the local fly shop and was told that it is good shape and usable so i figure ill use it and have a totally old school set up with my bamboo. What all is required for the maintenance of this line type? I bought the Animal fat stuff for the line anything else required?

Second part:
My Hardy bamboo wont seat properly... I tried using a paper towel to remove some oxidation but it is still about a 1/4 in out of the furl. Any suggestions? Last resort is take it to a pro
