IMP leak help

Alright so i was in the middle of a game and i was shooting, stopped for a second then my gun started to leak. Its not leaking out the barrel its an internal leak and the air is finding a way outside and coming out through the back where the trigger frame and body connect. Ive tried everything i can think of i checked hammer for o-ring problems all looked well then replaced the solenoid gasket. Still leaked then cleaned the spool valve and put a little bit of dow 33 on it and its still leaking. Is there anything else you guys can think of

make sure the solinoid is snug in there check your opirating pressure you might have it up higher then you kneed and check the valve orings make sure they are all good

^^Pretty much what he said. Sounds like its the solenoid, could be gasket or not completely snug...double check everything!

you one hundered percent sure its the solenoid? Just cuz air is coming from the noid area doesnt mean that it is the noid, it could be a leaky ram assembly. It might be your ramshaft oring...check it and make sure its not worn down. Also do you have a stock ram or slikshot?

the screws may not be tightened well enough or you could have stripped the holes a bit.
