Exclamation Pm6 air leak

So As the title says I have a pm6 that has an pretty Wierd air leak. First of all I hope I'm not bringing up a thread that has already been posted sorry in advanced, and also I have searched through the stickies and other post with no luck with same problem so thanks in advanced for any suggestions and help...

I have a pm6 with virtue board, stock bolt and regs other than hybrid guide system and color o-ring rebuild kit. All regs a set stock when attempting to fix problem and dye slick lube(white) on regs and slick honey on bolt.
My problem I'm having is when I air up the marker I get a massive air leak coming from just about everywhere and it takes me some adjusting and firing to finally get to stop leaking, once it stops I can cycle and shoot paint with no leaks and very consistent pressure change when shooting and no bolt stick. I thought the problem was fixed once I got that right but when I degassed the marker and gassed it right back it had the same problem with leaks, so I reset everything again and started process over... Fixed... So degassed again and had the same problem, I have done this multiple times with the same result, going through half a tank of air before getting leak to stop, I have tried different o-rings but stayed with same lube....
It seems Wierd that just degassing the marker and gassing back up it starts leaking all over the place, has anyone else had this problem or know a solution?

Thanks.

It could be your noid sticking and not sealing initially, especially with a marker that old and if the noid hasn't been cleaned in the past few years.

Does the leak persist when you try cycling the noid after gassing it up?

Never thought of that and it is persistent when it is cycling with the leak, but once it stops leaking it won't leak again until degassed. And also I am using fresh batteries. Will def try to clean noid!

No scratches or gouges, and has been lubed and o-rings changed. And it will leak from almost every possible place until I keep adjusting the regs. Just seems Wierd that once I get it to stop leaking it's fine until re gassing the marker. Gonna try and clean noid before I re clean everything else. The only places grease should go when cleaning the noid should be on gaskets correct?

As far as I know you lube the noid orings with a light coat of grease. Making sure not to leave any clumps of grease behind as this may clog your air passages. Please someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Does anyone spray like any fluid through it to clean or just rub clean?

Don't spray anything into the noid. I prefer to disassemble the noid completely and wipe down the spool, but there are fragile parts in there that you could break if you don't know what you're doing.

Ok so took noid apart and found all the black o-rings in good shape but two orange ones to be cracked... Feeling like this could be the issue most likely, anyone know where to find those o-rings? And am I right assuming this is the problem? Or are they some type of spacers?

Those 2 "cracked" orings are meant to have a cut in them. Do you have an idea as to where exactly the leak is coming from?

It seems to leak from everywhere until I get a sweet spot but biggest leak is from the frame area.
