Question ego9 solenoid leak

hey guys im working on fixing a leak from my ego9 solenoid.

the leak is coming from the solenoid somewhere and i was thinking maybe the spool but i cant seem to work it out of the noid. any thoughts on how to get it out?

i thought about grasping it with a pair of needle nose and pulling it out but would yanking it out of there damage it?

edit: pulled it out with needle nose and appears to be in good shape no broken orings and well lubed.. >.< no idea what to do now..

Check your LPR assembly.. Chances are it is feeding too much air to the solenoid, causing it to purge. Or dig deeper and check the manifold gaskets etc.

Change the LPR body orings. Three 14x2 orings.

Take the reg off, there is a 1/8 Allen screw, remove and the LPR housing(the part the the LPR screws into) will slide out the front of the gun- change orings.

Hope it helps.

If itīs the gasket you can always search google for ego solenoid gasket but i already did that for you and the first one it showed was that paintballgateway has them.

To get to the gasket you have to take apart your frame,disconnect your wires from board first,then after that you can take the solenoid of with an allen key(2 screws ). Best to check your manual. The manual is really helpful and it is well written with great picīs so you can see what to do
If you donīt have the manual anywhere i am sure you can find it somewhere on the eclipse website

Hope it helps, good luck.
