PM6 ASA Leak

I've got an UL'ed pm6 that just started leaking out of the ASA a couple days ago.

I've gone and put a matching o-ring inside of the asa where there was a deep ridge that it looked like an o-ring may have been, and it cut down the leak by about half, however it's still leaking out enough to keep the regulator from getting any air.

I cant find any posts on it, and i've gone through some manuals, and there's no way to disassemble the PM6 ASA that i've found.

I've thought about some Locktyte or whatever that tape is called.. forgot, around the on/off knob where it's leaking at, however.. i'd like a more solid solution.

Or it could just be the tape that's missing, i dont know, not much info on it.

Should i just slap a CP ASA on it? or does anyone here know on how I can fix this leak.


Thanks.

I noticed there isn't much information on this, here I'll explain with pictures! Yay!

Here is the proper way that it goes, first it's the knob, then the body, the o-ring (it's an 07 o-ring), the brass part, the round part goes facing the o-ring and the the flat part against the pin.



Assembled pin.



To take this apart, you need a 6mm socket wrench, it simply goes against the pin.



You just stick it in where you screw the tank in



When you screw it off, the knob is usually tight on the body, but you don't really need to take that off, unscrew the pin and it just comes right off, then when you screw it back in the knob goes back to normal, when screwing it back in don't screw it in tight because then the knob won't turn. Do it as tight as it can get without the knob getting stuck.
