Is something wrong with my new timmy?

I posted this in another thread but did not get any response...

The front HP/LP reg assembly seems to have a fairly significant gap between it and the body of the gun, particularly towards the bottom where the LP reg is. Here is a picture:



It is actually a bit wider in person (the picture isn't very good). Is this normal? Can it be fixed?

On a side note, if anyone wants to see what a BigShot looks like on a black timmy, click on the link in my signature.

Thanks,

That looks normal. The gap I see is between the Grip and The Reg Housing. If that is so then it look about right. If the Reg Housing moves from side to side then you need to tighten it.

Thanks guys. I'm glad to hear it is not a problem. I'd rather they did not come that way, but if that is the only thing wrong with it, I'm cool...

Thanks,

Yep, that's my boy!

I have a baby girl too. My son is very funny (smart and cute too, he gets it from his Mom). I just can't get enough of either of them.

The gap is perfectly normal. If you take the gun apart you will see that there is an air hose that runs between the reg and the rest of the gun. The reg is on there pretty securely so it doesn't really matter that there's a gap.

My Timmy has the same thing and actually wiggles quite a bit when not aired up. Could someone please tell me how to tighten the regulator housing.

Greetings Greenster,
To fix your problem with the regulator housing, remove the two screws that hold your grip frame on.
GENTLY slide the grip frame back about 1/4 of an inch.
Look right behind the regulator housing and you will see a 1/8" allen head screw.
This holds the regulator housing in place.
Tighten this up.
Replace your grip frame being careful to not pinch any wires or hoses.
The longer screw of the two goes in the back on the grip frame.
That's it.
