Can I get some information on what I need to look at and what parts I will need to order, or with this kind of a problem would it be better to just send it in? I am located in Charlotte, NC

Thanks!

Thanks LefHook, I just placed and order for some of them. Are there any other possible problems that I should be aware of with this issue?

Thanks!

QEV's are a common issue with these. If it's not working just right you may as well throw it away and put a new one in. Even if you can't spot the tear, it takes pretty much any little imperfection to render it useless. Be careful with the little buggers.. they're finicky. If you pull one out because it's not working, might as well just throw it away and put in a new one.

Have you checked the rammer orings? Does the gun sound like its choking for air when you get it to fully cycle? Or does it not even get to a full cycle?

So I had to replace the QEV diaphragm on my Demon, I went to take it apart and replaced it without a problem. I noticed that where you put the hook in to take out the QEV, the metal was crushed a little bit (picture below). I am not sure how this could have happened, but now when I air it up I can hear a tiny leak coming out of the area where the grip frame meets the body.

Is there a way to get a new manifold? I checked the Diaphragm in case that was the problem again, but it isn't as I replaced it with the same results.

Thanks,
Fred

I would pull out that o-ring and clean up those burrs with a pick and tiny rasp. Then put a new o-ring in and try that.

I completed that, but the gouge is big enough that the QEV diaphtragm isn't covering the hole, so it is giving a steady small leak, the marker still cycles..

I haven't been able to get a hold of Frank, is there anywhere else that I could get a manifold from?
