differentiating between a solenoid piston or gasket leak

so, how do I do it? i've replaced the seemingly faulty piston seals, and the leak lessened, but it still comes out the exhaust port from the noid. how can I determine if it is still a piston seal or the solenoid gasket?

even farther, how can I determine which piston seal is leaking, so I'm not guessing and checking....

How are you positive it is either of those things? Not to ask dumb questions (maybe there is a prior thread I missed) but did you make sure the ram o-rings are good? A faulty Ram o-ring would replicate a solenoid leak.

If you really want to get down to the nitty gritty just look at the outputs on the solenoid. If there is leaking from the solenoid while it is in the de-energized position (aka not shooting) then it can only be one o-ring



in this picture it would be the third o-ring from the right on the solenoid spool..

But in all honesty, those solenoids can be found fairly cheap. Why bother rebuilding when you can get a new one? Then you don't have to deal with a possibly burnt out solenoid coil and you can start fresh.

The internal o-rings appear to be on good shape. I'll take another look and see what i can find. Thanks for the info!

Would a faulty ram o-ring cause the leak through the noid exhaust port?
