Aka Scm Iii

Got one on my Ripper 2 and it is leaking excessively out of the front of the reg where you adjust the pressure. Put new Orings and a valve in it, but had no luck. I'll try Orings again, but any specific thoughts on what I might be missing? I am using the AKA specific oil as well. Thanks ahead of time guys!

Only way air can go out the front is by getting past the piston oring. Be sure you replaced it with the correct size.

Thanks Gamer...AKA told me to try both a 013 and a 014 on the piston so I'll see if I can seal it up with that.

You can also order a repair kit from AKA, but looks to be standard BN70 orings.

Well I had some time to tinker today and replaced the piston oring with a 014 and it will seal up great at 80psi and above, but anything under that and it still leaks right out the front.

What about the oring on the schrader valve...? It is a brand new schrader valve and oring from AKA, but I had the same issue prior to replacing this as well.

Honestly, I would replace them all. Brand new o-rings can be bad, even when they visually look fine. You have no idea how long an o-ring has sat on a shelf in a warehouse or store before it made it into your hands. Over time o-rings degrade on their own. That "new" o-ring could have been sitting around, un-lubed for a year before you received it. No way to know.

Usually, when I have a leak that I'm having difficulty diagnosing, if replacing one or two o-rings still leaves me with a leak that I can't locate, I simply replace them all. It's very rare when that doesn't fix the issue.
