A1 fly reg boring sizes

Hi all, I've got a regulator leak out of a weep hole on my A1. I don't know what size o-rings I need to rebuild. I don't want to wait for shipping for an orange kit and I can get them for a lot cheaper if I only knew what sizes I need.

Imperial standard size 012 for the large piston o-ring and 006 for the large piston shaft o-ring and the small piston o-ring. From the factory these are PU70, but a lot of people like to switch them out to BNR as the factory o-rings have a tendency to turn into a jelly-like substance when they break down.

You can find most o-ring sizes listed in the A1 Grease and Lube Card, which you can download in the following thread: http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=4056082

make sure that the minireg small piston hasnt lost its top oring. That is non-replaceable. You have to replace the whole piston

The small piston body o-ring would also cause that leak - make sure you didn't accidentally nick it or something when you re-installed the piston. You might have just got a bad o-ring out of the package as well, it happens. If the seal on the top/face of the piston is still there, try swapping out the piston body o-ring again, and be sure to grease it when you reinstall.

Yeah, sometimes "close enough" really isn't close enough
