Cyborg 06 leak experiance
Hi, I resently posted a thread about buying a Sonic cyborg 05. And because of that I also bought a 06 :-)
I just wanted to share this with all of you.
I had a leak I first thought came from the ram. I did some basic maintenance on ram and ram housing. It still leaked. So I tried to pinpoint the leak. Found out it came from the valve. After reading a LOT of threads about leaking 06 I took out the valve and found out it had the 07 red valve with delrin poppet/cup seal. Changed the orings and did not over tighten the valve set screw. Still leaked :-(
So I took it out again and inspected it really close, I used a flashlight (in a dark room) to light up the inside of the valve while looking at the cup seal for light coming out. I found a small scratch where the light escaped the valve. I thought "great, now I have to buy a new one". But since I already was set to buy a new I thought I maby could just sand it down with a fine grit paper. All I had was 400. So I tried, did the flashlight thing again and it looked ok. Put it back together and the leak was gone! I'm so happy now!
By the way, it's a MD cyborg 06 with 07 red valve and clamping feedneck. Black and gold P.I.M.P edition witch I bought for $120.
