Good evening Bill!
I have a 06 ego with a leak in the solenoid. Are the internal orings for the solenoid still available and are they in the comp parts kit? Thank you!

Thanks in advance for the help
- Swap out 2 of the rammer orings. #9 in the front, #11 in the rear (see page 55/56 of your manual).
- Please check the LPR to be sure it is assembled correctly (page 53/54 of the manual). Also while you have it apart inspect the piston. There should be a small plastic-like piece pressed into the skinny end of the piston shaft. This is called the LPR piston regulator seat.
- Inspect the front QEV caps on the QEV block. If you overtighten the rear grip cover screws it will bend/break them (page 65, figure 17.1).
- Check the front QEV diaphragm. Be sure it isn't cut or torn. It should be one solid piece (page 64/65 of the manual).
- Airline

You need to heat it prior to trying to spin it. Use either a heat gun or a cigar lighter. You will need to use a wrench that fits snug. Do not jar it. You need to use a smoother steady pressure.

Heavy
is the EGO6 solenoid leaking coming out between the solenoid and manifold or out the pack of the electrical section?

Yes, you can use two gold springs.

Not sure about the adjuster piston (cup). I have been sold out for awhile.

Use some PE grease and swap the orings even if they look good.

Make sure there is no paint. Gas up the marker with the barrel off. Pull the bolt pin up and slide the bolt forward. Does it get louder? If so, it is one of the following 3 issues...
- Replace the Exhaust valve guide orings.
- Replace the Exhaust valve (poppit).
- Replace the Exhaust guide (valve body).

New battery regardless what the meter reads!
New rammer orings. All three. Let me know if the middle one has alot of wear!
Check that the solenoid is plugged into the board.
Check to see that the gun is not in training mode.
Check the dwell. It should be roughly 10.5
Is the LPR assembled properly? There are 4 parts inside the cap: adjuster screw, pen-like spring, piston and gold spring. The piston shaft should be pointing out of the cap so it slides into the gun. The gold spring should be over the shaft.
