Torpedo Issue

Having a strange HPR issue I can't seem to figure out. When I try to decrease the amount of pressure going into my gun by backing out the adjustment screw, it only seems to happen to about ~175 PSI, even if I completely back out the set screw until its loose. The gun still fires even without the adjustment screw at all ( right around that 160-180 pressure range)

Is it the piston that is getting stuck or something else? I tried taking off all the lube on the piston oring and placing just a smidge back on with no affect.

Thanks

Edit: It is also REALLY stiff when trying to screw in my adjustment screw, I am not sure if this is relevant to the above issue but it sounds like it

Is your fitting in the gauge hole?

Sounds like your reg internals may be a little screwed up.

Assuming everything is assembled correctly...

Could be a bad pin/Schrader valve. Check/lube/replace the oring on the valve.

Any scoring on the inside of the reg wall that would cause a groove enabling your spring or piston to get hung up? Is your pin valve bent at all?

Ill check my internals when I get home and change that 113 oring. If it overswelled do to previous overlubing before I got it could that be an issue? When I got it it was caked in dow

Probably not. It's not going to overswell to the point that it's going to resist the movement of several hundred psi of pressure behind it. Now if your piston or the spring were hung up in a groove worn into the metal...you might see that. I suspect it's probably a pin valve issue or a combo of a pin valve and a piston/groove issue.

this happened to me once.... try dissassembling your torp again, wipe down and inspect all internals... lube well, reassemble, reset regs and try again

I noticed that the washer had a smooth side and a rougher side, and I simply flipped it so the smooth side was facing towards the top of the reg. I rubbed a drop of tri-flow on the washer to make it slide smoother, and all is fixed. thanks guys

Now that that is fixed, of course the universe has to balance itself out and break something else...

Let's see if anyone knows what is going on with my WAS Equalizer 2.9 board. When I turn it on the eyes read functional, and when I put my finger in the breech it reads that it has something loaded, and then when i pull the trigger, instead of it clicking the solenoid, it starts going through different LED colors like its in trigger programming mode. I started this without the trigger pulled so I know its not in trigger programming mode, and like I said it was flashing green to begin with just as in firing mode.

I also put it in tournament lock mode to prevent it from switching into programming mode, and it simply toggles between flashing orange and flashing green as it does when you try to start the gun in programming mode while it tourney lock. It does not activate the solenoid.

I checked all the wire connections and nothing looks loose or pinched. The only thing I can think of is either something shorted in my board (please no), or that my rechargeable battery is on the fritz and not putting out enough power (could that cause my issue?)

thanks again...

Update: It actually is switching into programming mode, even if I start in regular fire mode. instead of the noid activating it just starts going through the different programming LED codes...
