Hey I have a leak in the chamber of my gun. I'm not sure what's going on. I've checked the o-rings on the bolt, all connections and all that. I'm running out of ideas. My suspicion is starting to creep towards the cupseal or valve but I have no idea how to get to those and how I would find replacements.
The valve isnt deep into you gun and its prolly just a oring on the valve. Don't know what you are talking about oring on the bolt though. Possibly you mean ram. First put your pressure at 300 the put your lpr in until it leaks then back it out 1/4 turn. If this doesn't stop the leak take out your ram and lpr. Slide out the valve. You have to take off the grip frame and undo a small set screw.
i know its not the pressure because i dont go near 300 psi. i usually set it between 270-280. i did exactly what you said g_cookie before this. the funny thing is, it worked perfectly yesterday, and the only thing i did to it afterwards was completely take it apart and relube it. i'm thinking i may have damaged the valve in this process.
to go into more detail, the air escapes out of the barrel. when i push the bolt in and out with my finger while it's aired up, it makes kind of a swooshing noise like the bolt is passing over the leak. and how do you not kno about oring on the bolt. the bolt has two orings on it... you kno.. the delrin bolt..
I think its the valve i have an 02 and i took apart and lubed ect..then put back together and it was doing the same thing as yours(was working perfectly before). then i took out the valve, cleaned and lubed it again .. and it stopped the leak. wierd
It's most likely your Valve/Cupseal. I've had tons of guns leak out of the barrel, cockers, spyders, my bros Torid X. Every time it's the Cup seal or valve oring on the front. Take apart the entire gun, including the valve and relube the Valve o-rings with some Dow55. Put it back together and if it still leaks, then you probably need a new cupseal.
Actually my guess is what happened is when you put your valve back in you sliced an oring. This can easily happen on a 03 because the ram cap is threaded. It is rough on the o-rings sliding them in. So I would check that. But did you back your lpr all the way out then start over. Sometimes after lubing the lpr you may put it back together and the rear retaining screw can but screwed in further so it is pressing the spring toghether, thus raising pressure. So the normal position you have your lpr at could actually be higher than before.
I didn't lube the lpr because i couldn't get anything out. The screw or grub screw that is visible on the outside was backed out all the way out before I adjusted it. (by the way, this screw has a hole in it, is this normal) The lpr screw that is not visible when attached to the gun was loctited in or something. I could not adjust that screw at all.
About the valve o-rings, yea, the sound they made coming out was harsh, but I inspected them for tears and there were none.
Tighten the cup seal? I just thought that the leak was because I had an imperfect cup seal. I was wondering how it could create a seal tho, seeing as how the seal is created by two hard objects contacting each other (kno wut i mean?) I didn't know you could tighten the cup seal. And I don't know how to either.
