Having trouble with your Spyder VS
Series Marker's regulator?
Want to just clean it up for the winter?
Take it apart and dont remember how to put it back?
Well, this thread should help you out.
First off, stuff you will need:
Small Allen Key with Ball End
Dow 33 or 55
There is all your stuff....
1. Take your wrench, and remove the fitting from the top of the regulator. Look inside of the regulator, you will see a small goldish copper colored disk. This is a filter used to ensure no weird things go into your gun. It is also responsible for some shootdown since it restricts airflow. Go ahead and tip the reg
upside down and tap it until it falls out. You dont need to remove it, but if your using Compressed Air, there is no real need to keep it.
See the disk? Yea, set it aside.
2. Now, take your wrench again and remove the top cap portion of the regulator.
That is what you will see when the cap is removed. This is the stem.
3. Now, take your allen key with the ball end, and stick it in that hole in the stem, use it to remove the stem.
There is the stem, and the little black disks are known as Shims, more on those at the bottom of this.
See that little clear thing on top of the stem? Make sure yours is in place, DO NOT LOSE IT!
5. Now, look into the hole left by the stem, you will see a small silver cylinder, use the allen key to remove that also.
Here it is all laid out.
And in review, this is all you should have so far.
Shim Layout on the Stem:
6 Shims total, make sure they look like that and have no dirt or anything on them.
Now, on to lubing.
Take your DOW, and the stem, and apply some DOW to the stem. Dont use a bunch, just enough to cover it without big clumps. I personally use DOW33 on my VS Reg
Apply some to the piston thing.... Same as before.
Now for re-assembly.
Take the Piston part, and place it back in the hole with the hole in it facing towards you:
Put the stem back in like so:
And now put the cap back on the regulator, with the macroline fitting already attached or attach it later, your choice:
The finished product:
Thats it! Thanks for reading.
