Autococker not recocking

Hello everyone, I am trying to resurrect my Revenge autococker (very slow progress on my behalf haha) and I am at a point where it no longer leaks or anything but after I pull the trigger it fires but the back block stays forward and doesn't move back. I don't live near my field so i am trying to get this up and running with 1000psi remaining in my 68/4500 so I don't have to make a special trip for air. What is the most likely thing to cause this? Any suggestions are appreciated and thank you in advance!

hinge or slide trigger? check the 3-way hose connections. if slider, cross the hoses (front to back of ram; back to front of ram); if hinge, front to front and back to back. cheers.

Reverse what he said if you have a Shocktech Bomb 4-way. The 4-way would be the first place to look.

At this point it has nothing to do with the hoses since the pneus aren't doing anything at all.

Try turning up the LPR and/or adjusting the timing rod to get the pneus to start moving the back block.

I'd be looking at the LPR first, chances are it's just zeroed out and not supplying pressure to the ram.

Bad timing would give you at least a few hisses and leaks.

Try turning that knob on the front of the 3way clockwise looking from the barrel end. That's a WGP Orracle 3-way, which is great if set up right, but it looks to be turned way out. I don't remember being able to see all that brass when I had one.

This also assumes you've adjusted the LPR up and down in pressure and that had no effect. And that your HPR isn't turned all the way down either. Gun goes bang when you manual cock and fire it, right?

Your hoses look okay. If they were backward, your bolt would just shoot back when you aired up the gun.

Your ram hoses are backwards. Reverse them then try increasing the LPR pressure.

That is an incredible gun by the way.

^^^ what he said; in the case of the Orracle 3-way, the hoses should be back-to-back and front-to-front.

Ok, I was able to get to the field and get some air. Now the problem is every time I pull on the trigger air comes out of the front of the 3 way (where the knob is). Also the back block stays completely back all the time now too. So I think it's not timed properly.

If you haven't already, swap the hoses to the ram like they say above. If that doesn't do it, try turning the knob on the front of 3way clockwise towards the body, say a quarter or half turn at a time. The activation throw on that 3way is very short so be patient with it.
