Trick with Function Valve?

So, my "brand new" function valve is leaking... a lot, took out the stem and it all looked fine, no chips, cracks, ect... but its not sealing worth a crap. Its been a while since I've messed with the older Imps, but IIRC its the valve orings that'd cause it leaking through the bolt, correct? I tried a few different times to rotate the valve stem and get it to seat, but nothing wanted to play nice with this Function valve. Any input or ideas is welcome. thanks

looking at PBreview, it seems if you lube the stem it won't leak... I cleaned mine completely dry. Thinking that may have been the issue.

Ive never used a function valve, but i assume its similar to stock in how it works... do you have the spring in the front?

The spring was seated well and the face of the valve and stem seemed clean and unmarked, I didn't get a chance to try the lube trick before I left town, unfortunately, hopefully I'll be able to on Sunday evening when I'm back at my place.

you put the valve in through the back of the gun? i dont remember if you even CAN put it through the front but if you can it will eat the orings.

leaking from the bolt? like the bolt is stuck foreward? or it leaks down the barrel?

yeah I only took it out to check the face, I completely ignored the orings themselves if I'm honest. and yes, from the rear. It was leaking through the barrel, but cycled like a dream otherwise.

hmm well unless one of the orings got pretty messed up i wouldn't think it would leak "a lot" but that's where i would start.

Nah, I stopped teching for them so I don't get the hookup anymore I don't think, that and I really don't play anymore. Twas a nice trigger, never put it in anything, lol. I loved my droids, I had a number of them, but my RX was my baby.

checked the valve again, orings were cut free and lube on the stem didn't seem to work... I'm kinda wondering if the orings on the valve are even the right size at this point tho

since it has static orings you could try some bigger ones. or maybe some dow55. at least that way you know if thats where the leak is coming from. the valve is usually what would cause a leak down the barrel...i cant think of anything else
