TechT G4 Bolt Engine question

Just recently got a TechT Bolt Engine for my G4 and it leaks out of the back cap, like where the threads are. Not the gauge port. Has anyone else had this problem? And what was your fix?

Do you have the backcap o-ring in place? Is it damaged or nicked?

Swap out that o-ring and you should be good to go.

I got my nephew one for a Christmas present and his leaked. Do NOT lube the back cap. He wiped the lube off of the back cap and the leak stopped.

I had this happen to me as well. Brand new G4 engine leaking out the backcap. A new oring fixed it but it was very annoying that a static oring would be bad right out of the box.

also make sure the spacer/bumper part (sits in the can and the bolt slides in and out of it) is placed all the way forward when you install. I found that sometimes it does not like to sit all the way forward and will cause a large leak that can be intimidating.

I have also received a couple G4 Engines that had the incorrect internal donut and wouldn't allow the back cap to screw in all the way.

I meant lube the ring around the cap, I think it's before the threads. Not wet or anything. A little DOW55 will cause it to swell and maybe help seal it. Done it to my G3.

Ok I may try that. Its irritating because I'll take the oring off and straighten it out, then gas up the marker and it'll hold air. Then after ungassing and gassing back up, the leak will start again. I tried putting the oring from the stock back cap onto the engine but that doesn't work either.

What do you mean by "straighten" it out? Are you sure you have the correct size o-ring on AND that it is in the correct location? Maybe post a pic of what it looks like before and after.

Well Techt CS told me to take the oring off and put back on again and make sure it is on straight. Apparently that oring kind of twists or something, idk. That's just what they told me. It was what came on the engine brand new.

Hmmmmmm......strange. The.only things that I can think of as to why it would leak is a damaged o-ring (can "look" fine bit isn't), the wrong size o-ring, the o-ring put in the wrong place, the engine not screwed all the way in, or damage to the engine and/or marker threads.

Have you tried screwing on the TechT backcap without the bolt and bolt stop? Just the backcap.........and see if it screws in further than when the bolt and stop are included.

Does anyone know the size of oring on the back cap of the Bolt Engine? The lady at Techt said its a 2070 but they aren't sized like that at the hardware store. They're sized with actual inch measurements.

That 2070 isn't going to help you because that doesn't sound like any number designation I'm aware of.

I believe that backcap threads o-ring is a 21.95mm ID X 1.78mm CS. That translates to a 7/8" ID X 1" OD with a 1/16 " CS.

Tried this ^^^ yet?

How about taking the o-ring off and screwing the backcap on to see if it screws in further.

Yep. Ill call TechT on Monday. Maybe it has something to do with tolerances on the aluminum or something? I'll see what they say and post their "fix" to it

That would be the next logical thought. Any wear on the backcap threads?
