All there and all good. When I removed the rammer cap to check the bumpers it was still holding air after two weeks! Guess I got a good seal.
Thats what made it feel different, now without the air it feels normal.
Thanks again!

I have an ego11, and I'm having issues with the act/pk bps meter.
When I use it on training, or even really firing my marker, instead of updating the act/pk bps, it stays at 00.0 bps until I change the screen to the timer, shot counter, then back to the act/pk bps. At this point, it will show the old bps.

If its unclear, I can show a vid on youtube later.
Is something up with the board?

Leak is right here:
If it isnt the LPR housing 14x2 orings, the LPR piston or the rammer orings, then it is most likely the solenoid.

Do you have the plank kit installed in the solenoid?

If so, you can raise the dwell slightly.

Change the detents.

Do you have the factory board in the rotor? if not, the setting could be set to high for the little rubber detents.

yes, using the HPR. Start with the screw all the way out. Then turn it in about 3.5 turns. Chrono from there.

The battery meter is for Volts, not Amps. A bad batch of batteries may read 9volts but the Amperage output could be compromised. Basically there is enough voltage but the "upkeep" isnt enough to maintain the proper level of power the gun needs.

The rear bumper inside the rammer cap. It gives a more spongy feeling.

I'm not sure what a plank kit is, all I know is the gun and rotor are both bone stock with the exception of the cure 3. I'll try changing the detents and and upping the dwel and see if that helps.

Check the rammer. Make sure the middle oring isnt getting beat up. If so, you need to purchase a plank kit.

Bill,
I recently put mid pressure SL3 regulator on my 08 Ego and when I turn my velocity to anything over 265-275 air starts venting out of the side port and doesn't stop until I turn it back down what is the issue here? If it's o-rings can I use any of the ones provided in my rebuild kit and what kind of grease do I use or can I just use oil?

Thanks

Hi, Bill.
Yesterday I recieved an Ego 10. It's used. Counter says that Ego made 83948 shots. The problem is when I turn eyes off, I can't hear solenoid because off trigger clicking like I did with my ETek 3. Is it solenoid so quiet or it's broken? I can't try air it up, because my tank is a little bit far from my current location.

Thank you.

Help..

Hey, Bill, i have a 06 ego and i just all of sudden put air too it and it would fire but ball would just roll out. Then i had air to it took of the grip and all the sudden all kinds of air would come out. I took it apart to the solenoid and there is a box connected to the solenoid, there is one clip holding it and looks like there should be another one, Would this be my problem?

Hey Bill,
I've got an Ego8 that I used in a tournament this past weekend. It was extremely cold and snowing but the only problems I had during the day were that it had a tiny leak and it did not chrono consistently. I used it and it worked great (aside from the leak and FPS problems). I took it home, lubed and cleaned everything and then set it down. A few days later, I wanted to see where the leak was coming from so I unscrewed the body and looked at the solenoid. The leak was gone and I put it back together. I tried to shoot it a few days ago and everytime it fires, it makes this weird popping noise itstead of how it normally sounds. It won't even shoot any paintballs either. Also, my teammate owns a Geo and he's having the exact same problem. Could the weather have done something to our guns?

bill,
I purchased a used ego with the z2 rammer in it only ploblem is the large black bumper on the back of rammer is missing. I searched and cannot find that bumper anywhere, only the one that goes in the cap. I dont see the need to buy a whole new rammer kit cause of just that part, any help greatly appreciated.
