DM8 Reg Leak - HALP ME

Hey all,

My DM8 has been super reliable and in all the years I've owned it I've never had a problem.

Conveniently last Friday night it started leaking out of the HPR - not sure why. I took the reg apart, wiped things down, relubed the orings and it's actually leaking worse.

Any advice? Someone on my team said it could be over pressurizing the LPR or something.. I'm not a tech and it's obvious.

Let me know if you can help and thank you for reading!

overpresuring the lpr wouldnt bother the hpr..
did you change the real small oring inside the lpr housing (#006 i think).. the one the piston slides on.. not the outer piston oring.. the smaller inner oring.

Honestly all the o rings looked okay to me so I didn't change anything out - I don't have much experience with regs though so maybe it's less obvious when the rings need replaced?

Teammate has my gun right now but i'll try that when I get it back - I think I have a complete rebuild in my bag so I'm hoping one of those little o rings is in there.

The air is coming out of the small hole that is drilled into the lower half of the HPR. It's not far from where the macro line goes into the reg.

theres only 2 orings in the reg.. the outer piston oring.. and the small inner oring the piston rides on..
replace both.. expect to spend a few minutes on the smaller one...( and by few minutes, i mean 30-60)

Yeah the small piston stem o-ring has a tendency to disintegrate after a few years. Kinda impossible to inspect if you didn't remove it. Replace that and you'll be good to go.
