Looking for some parts

So my local pro-shop was going through old stock and hooked me up with 3 Tribals. I got a Mephisto, BBT and Twister. The Mephisto had a switch problem but we got that resolved and I played with it today and had some fun.

The bad news is the other two arent working properly so Im looking for some parts.

The BBT when gassed up leaks from the solenoid but will fire. I tried to lower the LPR and the HPR, this did not resolve the leaking. This solenoid has two female inputs on it that connect to the board (while the twiser I have has a solenoid with two male stingers on its wiring.) Im going to try and get some wire connectors and put the Twisters solenoid in the BBT to see if I can get it functional.

Now the Twister seems to have board problems. It doesnt get power from its own board but when we take a different power board (the one with dip switches on it) the gun seems to light up.


So what Im lookin for at a good price (this isnt going to be a largely funded project) is a Solenoid with the 2 female inputs on its wiring. A 6 dip switch power board. Also im In need of the LPR tool, bolt pin and bolt itself. If you can hook me up with these peices let me know.

Well I was tinkering today and swapped solenoids from a known working Tribal to the BBT and it still leaks. I think its the LPR now, I had the same problem with my Defiant and after adjusting the LPR on that there were no problems. I was able to adjust the LPR and unfortunately it did not help. So I need to figure out how to take this darn gun apart and do a cleaning to figure out why when I try to adjust the LPR it does nothing.

On a interesting note, I found that the Twister will power on if I apply pressure to the switch or anything on the back LED's. The second I take pressure away it turns off. I tried to get into that backplate to see what connector issues Im having but the dang allen screw stripped! Im waiting on my buddy to get here with his screw extractor to see what I can do. Hopefully I have three working tribals soon!

Mephisto and Twister up and running!

Twister had a switch problem and the board behind the switch was grounding on the valve causing problems. Added black tape for insulation.

Do you ever feel like your talking to yourself? lol.

you should double check if the lpr or your AOC is not correct it will do that.... by the the optimal pressure is 110 on the lpr

Well I cleaned it and now it just leaks down the barrel. My AOC adjuster is seized and im pretty sure its bad. I hope my other two tribals AOC adjusters arent stuck.

I'd like to keep it stock, it may seem weird but im not looking to upgrade these or any of my older markers. Im collecting old markers and keeping them the way I get them.

What would a stock AOC run me? BTW, I tried to register on TOG but it said registration was disabled by the admin

did you still need a bolt and all that? I have a long aluminum bolt as well as a short nylon (I think it's nylon) one from TOG

It seems we have completely different ideas, because I got an old fluster and am upgrading the hell out of it to see just how good I can make the dang thing.

Thanks for the reply! Im waiting on a package that someone said they had shipped, im not sure if bolts were included. I will see what happens if I get this package.

Im more about keeping these old guns stock. It wouldnt be very nostalgic to remove the way they ran when they were stock, so as someone whois trying to collect them I want it to be how it was from the factory. Its completely cool that your modding yours of course, and I would love to see one of these rip, there are a serious lack of youtubes with the Tribal.

I eventually want to start a youtube channel with overviews of the old guns I have and show people video of them shooting and such.
