I'm swapping parts, and would need to remove the swivel collar. When re-assembling the macroline fitting do you recommend using a loctite product again, gas line tape, or nothing? Thank you.

I recommend blue loctite. Eclipse uses green, but blue seals fine and is less permanent.

Thanks for the prompt answer. I was able to remove the macrofitting with a vice-grip without too much of a problem, protecting the surface with a piece of cloth.

Do you have any hint about unscrewing the bottom portion of the regulator without harming the anno?

You should be able to unscrew both halves of the reg by hand. If it is a little tight though you might could try using some of those rubber grippy things people use for removing lids from jars.

In relation to using 'blue' Loctite thread-lock for the macroline fitting, there are a lot of Loctite products that are blue, and they don't all have the exact same properties. I would suggest using Loctite product numb er 243, as this is a grease and oil resistant thread-locker, where most of the others aren't.

With regards to the regulator end cap, if you really cannot get it off, wind the pressure adjuster in a little (not too far) - count the number of turns so that you can then unwind it the same amount.

If you look around the adjuster screw, you will see that there is a large hex hole that the pressure adjuster passes through. Having screwed in the adjuster, you can then insert a large allen key in to this hex hole to unscrew the reg end cap.

Thanks for the hints. I will get the #243. For others who have the same problem I do, the adjuster screw uses 1/8" Allen key, and the larger one that fits the reg end cap is 5/16" size.

What is the best way to remove the solenoid and eye wires from the board without damaging them?

It seems everytime I take them off, I hold my breath from pulling the wires from the connectors and leaving me with broken ones.

geo 2 leaking very slowly out the noid, it is leaking specifically on the right side where the little hole with the silver bead like structure, seems like that is there so it does not over pressure, but it starts leaking as soon as i get to the 220 fps, kinda frustrated with it and dont know what to do :/


PLEASE HELP! I HAVE A TOURNY IM PLAYING THIS SUNDAY!!!!!

I use a simple chip puller to get hold of the plug, rather than the wires.

Most likely an issue with the gasket, a cracked manifold housing or the spool pack.

If you do a google products search for 'chip puller' you should be able to find one easily enough. Alternatively, electronics shops are likely to stock them.

The optimal dwell setting will vary from marker to marker, and also change depending on weather conditions, how well the marker is serviced, what grease you are using and how much of it, how much use it has seen, how well the o-rings fit, etc.

What effect you are trying to achieve will also have an effect on how you tune the marker - are you looking for maximum efficiency, or maximum smoothness? Dwell settings will be different for each.

Basically, there is no one dwell setting that is going to be optimal in every single marker, under every single set of circumstances. You need to experiment with your own marker to find the optimal dwell settings for it.

If you have no time to tune, have no pre-conceived notion of how you want to tune the marker, or just want settings that you know are going to work under pretty much any circumstances, stick with the stock settings.

With regards to the trajectory of the shot - and disregarding such things as back spin barrels - trajectory is dictated by the initial velocity of the ball, and it's ability to retain that velocity as it goes downrange.

So, you want to be able to get as close to chrono limit as possible without going over, and that means that you want to work on getting your velocity as consistent as possible. You want your paint to be small (to reduce wind resistance) but as heavy as possible (for momentum). You want it to be round, and as consistent in size and weight as possible.

There may be things causing the ball to drop prematurely - causing the reverse of back spin if you will - so it is worth checking your marker for anything that could adversely effect the flight of the ball. Dirty breech and bore, any bore defects, worn ball detents, low quality paint that isn't round, etc.

That's all very helpful. Thanks for the break down. Just didn't know if there was a certain setting that could do that close to stock. Thanks again!!!

Hey guys, I have a geo2, and when I air it up, it leaks significantly from the FRM (front regulator mount). I have replaced the o ring multiple times with the appropriate #17 nbr70, and I've tried some eclipse grease, and even dye slick lube to swell the o ring a little, but it still leaks significantly from where the reg screws onto the frame. One thing I notice is that if I unscrew the reg 1/10 of an inch, literally just a tiny tiny bit, the leak goes away about 95%, but if you put your ear up to it, you can still faintly hear it. What do I do?!?!

Use a 20x2 o-ring instead. It'll be a tight fit, but if you grease it up and go slowly, you should be able to install the reg over that o-ring without shredding it. The tighter fit will stop the leak.

I'll give it a shot this weekend and let you know!
