Help! Severe leakage!

Don't know if I'm in the right place, but I know all the Bushy owners are very inteligent people . With that said, I have a problem. I just got a bushy2k3 w/PDS I put a shocktech drop on it and a THOR regulator. Im like sweet, lets get this baby gassed up. I try to gas it up and massive leakage, It's coming from the thor reg. All the air is coming out of the little hole in the threading. I believe its called the "bleeding valve" or somethin like that. Someone told me to try to put an o-ring at the bottom on the thor and screw it in. That did not work. i also put a new o-ring on my tank. Im not sure if its the tank or the thore that is messed up. I have a PE 68/3000 carbon fiber. I think thats all the info I can give. Feel free to ask questions and PLEASE HELP!!!

take the thor and throw it out the window, you dont need one. your reg can handle preset tanks just fine. you dont need the added trouble of an extra reg to mess up.

Im taking your advice, The pin is way too long, an o-ring in the thor wont even stop it from leaking. So, I have to find some way to get my money back and get rid of that pos. Should I sell my PE 68/3000 too?? Also, what kind of tank/reg should I get??

I am partial to the new Nitro Duck X-Treme systems.

They are adjustable from 300-900 PSI and they screw in to a standard ASA as well.

have you already done this?

take out the screw and put teflon tape around it. that should stop the leaking. I know i did that on my drop forward because it was leaking and it stopped it right away.

Ok... well on second read... Your tank sounds fine. I would just run it directly into your reg. Get a Uni-Mount or a Micro Drop and play the heck out of the gun .

Thor regulator

A while back my cousin had the same problem with his Thor Regulator on a Shocker ( We replaced the 3000 psi Maxflow with the Thor) and the Pure Energy Representative we spoke with said that we had to replace an o-ring on the Thor. Anyways, we sent it in for repair and we got it back fixed. The Thor works fine, but on a bushy you don't really need it; it will make the gun a lot heavier. You can use your Pure Energy 3000 psi tank alone on the Bushy without any problem.

save yourself some cash and use the PMI Tank and buy either a AKA Sidewinder, 2k3 Macdev Gladiator, or a Bob Long Torpedo, all 3 of them are great regulators and cheaper considering that the maxflo is well over 120+ Dollars, I just picked up a Bob Long Torpedo for 50 bucks at blazepaintball.com and the reviews on it are great
