ego 6 qev leak.

my ego 6 is leaking inside the body of the gun so i separated the frame from the body and listened for leaks. it appears to be the qev closest to the noid(i dont think its the noid itself) upon inspection when i push said qev into my marker it appeared to quiet the leak. both qevs also seem loose like i can push them in and out. so is it possible i can just reloctite the qev or do i pretty much just need to bite the bullet and find a new one?

update! upon further dissasembly and inspection the qev is definatly broken. as in when i tried to remove it, it came straight out due to its threads being stuck in the rammer housing. so new questions i found an 05 ego rammer housing for sale but i dont know if it will work with my 06, does anyone know if this is possible? or any tips on getting the threads out? i think they are locktighted in. these are my 2 options. literally any help would be nice.

An 05 rammer housing will work in an 06 Ego. The hard part is finding replacement QEVs. ProstarPB.com used to have them, but I do not see them on the site. The threads might have to be drilled out, without damaging the threads in the rammer housing.

I just bought new rammer housing and I still have one intact qev though I'm nervous as to its reliability.

Paintball showcase is basically the go-to site for any Ego parts, so yes, it's legit.

Do you want to sell your old housing. I might be able to fix it.

(my 06 had same problem) Paintball showcase is legit - Bill will take care of you - I had the same issues - you have to heat up the loctite to loosen it but send it to Bill he will do it for your without messing up the sleeve - he only charged me $22 - got my gun right back and all was well again
