Used squish won't degas/vent/purge when I flip the lever

Hello, I got a used squish the other day and it will not degas, vent, purge (or whatever you want to call it) when I flip my lever off.

Things I have tried to do:
I put one drop of triflow on the pin. No change
I took the brass piece out w/ 1/2 in socket to clean. No change
I took the lever off took out the (no idea what it's called) part that pushes the pin forward when the lever is flipped on. Cleaned. No change

This happens with all three of my tanks. I have an sl77 w/ v2 reg, another crossy w/ lp reg and a crossy with hp reg. All do the same thing. Never had this with my other squish. It looks like the pin doesn't push the pin in the tank reg far enough in. When I took the lever off I could push the pin a lot further out (toward the tank reg).

Anyone else have this ever? If so, did you get it fixed? If you did get it fixed how did you do it?

Hold the gun barrel pointing towards the ground. Learned that trick from someone on EVOG (not exactly sure why that works). 2 other solutions that worked for me too, dry fire while purging and pull the bolt kit out while purging.

Is the pin installed the correct way? It should be the flat end towards the tank.
I saw a customer with it installed incorrectly before which is why i ask.
