Ion leaking; O-ring or not??

Hi, all! I've had my Ion up and going for awhile now and today at the field it started leaking not from the banjo up front(5/12) nor the QEV, it was leaking from the rear banjo however. I took it apart and there is no o-ring at the end of the screw. Is there suppose to be one there? If not why would it be leaking? Please help and thanks!

Yes, there is supposed to be a small o-ring at the base of the threads on the banjo.

If you don't have an o-ring, you can wrap some teflon tape around the banjo threads.

I don't mean at the bottom of the base I mean when you put the screw in the middle of the banjo its milled around where it looks like a o-ring could go..

Not the one at the front where the reg is nor the middle where the QEV is I mean there is one at the back (looks like the pic below kinda) it's alum. I think and has a screw shaped like a bolt but, has been milled for a flathead screwdriver too.

He has one of those Shocktech Banjo's supplied with the body. Look in his sig, ST body. Those body kits came with a modified banjo fitting.

ST Ion Body Kit

Read the third paragraph:

The bodies also include the proper banjo fitting to ease assembly and disassembly. Kit also includes pre-fitted hose, hose barb and extra o-rings.

Sounds like you need to contact Shocktech and buy a new banjo fitting.

Yes, you can still use teflon, or an o-ring off another banjo fitting.

I bought it used so I can't get another one off an old one and where do I wrap the teflon? At the base or base to the middle or all?

Wrap it around the threads.

Give it 5-6 wraps.
