DM10 solenoid/LPR leak

So i have a consistent leak when i pressurize the gun. Sounded like it was coming from the trigger area, so i separated the frame from the body and pressurized the system again and maybe i have bad hearing but i simply cannot pinpoint where its coming from... definitely the solenoid or LPR. I've disassembled the lpr and the solenoid and clean/greased everything. Still leaking..

Any help is appreciated

I just fixed a similar leak on a dm9:

http://www.dyematrix.com/manuals/Dye...M10_Manual.pdf
Page 21(lpr)

Part #6 - a white/transparent o-ring, located in the front of the LPR-body on the inside. It seals the LPR piston that goes through the body.
These tend to dry up and then easily get cracks.

Hope it helps.


Oh btw, it's a pain the Hershey highway to get a new o-ring in

Appreciate the help jagar, after you said that i went and took that o-ring out.. it actually looked good, so i didnt replace it... yes it was a total biatch to get back in.

After sitting for 10 minutes wasting my HPA in my tank trying to listen and find where it was coming from, it was because my solenoid wasnt fully tightened down, we're talking a quarter of a turn on one of the screws and the leak went away haha. (Doh!)

i use the eraser end of a pencil to get that oring in.
nothing sharp to cut the oring, but enough even pressure to pop it right in.

glad you got it fixed.
sometimes its the most obvious things that get overlooked.

Thats a good idea with the eraser... i can imagine it being perfect size

And thanks again.... i normally try and refrain from asking questions as its a pride thing for me to figure things out on my own... but after wasting enough HPA and taking the gun apart and almost ripping the eye wires apart i figured i might as well ask, haha.
