Help with g4 regulator

I am having problems with my g4 blowing orings on the asa. I took apart the reg to rebuild it and noticed that in between the piston seal and the regulator spring there is a shim or washer. The diagram in the manual doesn't show a shim. Is this suppose to be there?

Sooo... Did you figure out the problem? You started this thread and then said you solved the ASA oring issue later in an older thread you started. Also I find it strange in your other thread that cleaning out your noid stopped the orings bursting. Whatever works though.

The problem was resolved by cleaning out the solenoid. The only thing i can assume was happening was that the metal was not allowing the air to flow through the solenoid thus adding additional pressure in the asa blowing the oring. When I aired up the gun when I had the problem the raps lever was really hard to move. Now it is smooth and easy, once again because the air was not being built up due to the blockage in the noid. I still have the shim in the regulator, but is it suppose to be there?

I seem to recall reading posts stating either way......some with the washer and some without. I can't recall what I have in my G4s. I'll check mine when I get a chance.

Maybe I'm just not understanding this but from what I do understand, I feel like the air between the tank reg and inline reg would stay at a constant and the only pressure that would be effected by the decrease in volume due to the solenoid being messed up would be the air regulated down by the inline that feeds directly into the noid and bolt system. I could see that being a little higher due to lower volume but shouldn't the air going through the ASA, which is just the air from the tank to the inline, remain constant? Regardless, If the gun works now that's awesome.

LOL - Well, not sure if this is going to help or not but I checked both of my G4s and one has a thin shim and the other does not. I did get both of them used so there is that factor. I think it could go either way, with or without. If you've had it in there this whole time and it came that way, just leave it in. If you want to experent a little, see if taking it out makes a difference (I would bet it doesn't).
