Z-Force pump cocker valve leaking

Ran into an issue with my Z-Force cocker. The valve leaks down the barrel almost continually. I've adjusted the valve spring with different Spyder springs and it seems that at best I can get the leak down to a slow hiss but it will still leak.

Thoughts anyone?

Not sure about your Z-Force but on my S6.5 a barrel leak is usually caused by cup seal issues.

I think my issue is more that there isn't enough spring tension to keep the valve closed. I have to turn the pressure way down even with a stiff valve spring for it to not leak but then it barely shoots.

Either way I will check the cup seal and valve o-ring

Checked the cup seal and valve o-rings, no issues.

I have heard that the 2 screws that hold the body halves together can leak, causing the leakage down the barrel. You might try some teflon tape on them to seal them. Usually this happens if you have taken the body halves apart at some point, but could happen at any time.

Thanks for the tip. Don't think that was the issue because wouldn't it be leaking around the body halves then? Either way it turned out to be a combination of spring issues and my Sidewinder not putting out high enough output. Swapped a BL Torpedo and a different Sidewinder and it works just find. Still don't know whats up with my Sidewinder.
