The 012 in a VCOM (pic)

Why does it keep leaking. I'm on my 3rd oring to get a seal. I grease the groove then put in the oring and grease. When I gas it, it's quiet. Fire it a few and listen and it starts to leak until it's fired again, then slowly starts to leak again, repeat.

Also, unrelated, why would I have a bunch of grease inside the frame at the back of the solenoid? Does it vent or something

Your over lubing.

My guess is your shut-off is sitting crooked which is causing wear / seal issues.

Did you replace the 1x25, 110, and 1X4?
Do you have a urethane 12 oring?

Yes I replaced all the seals in the middle of the engine the 20, 25, 4, 18. I've done the 12 oring 3 times but not the 110, I need to get some I guess. I was thinking about trying a urethane, can I do that ? Will the 110 cause a leak also? How do you change the flapper ? I can't tell how to even take it out without destroying it, it looks stiff.

I was thinking since it's leak free when gassed up until it's shot. I was looking at the orings sealing the bolt. The 012, 110 or flapper. No?

Btw, I am getting the click when I seat the shut off.

For the flapper what i found works best is to use tweezers to kind of dig it out. Replacing it is a pia because you have to make sure it lays flat. It might be the size 12. Just take it out put lube in the place then smash the o ring in there and try it the .

I had a leak that could not be stopped, it was a very light hiss from inside the engine, I literally tired every oring twice, tons of lube, med lube, and little lube, no go, it came down to the front brass piece had unset a tiny tiny bit (it isn't supposed to ever move, it is pressed in from factory), blast reset it, and also replaced the on/off brass piece and it is tight as a drum and is amazing. The tech told me that I would have never found or fixed the leak without re-pressing that front brass section of the engine.

I ended up sending it to Blast. They checked the solenoid, rebuilt the LPR and replaced all the orings and it still leaked for them. They found that there was some old, maybe gritty, grease in the body up front near the breach and it was one of both of the 021s causing it.
