GT leaking around the solenoid area when shooting.

Ok so I am at about wits end on how to fix my GT. It leaks around the solenoid area (trigger area) when firing a string of paint. When it is leaking (air gushing sounds) it refuses to shoot. It does not leak at other times. I have replaced the keg o-rings, the bolt sail, the valve o-rings and the powertube o-rings in order to try and fix it but it is still occurring. (Note. I did not change ALL the o-rings at once, but one at a time in order to see which o-ring is causing the problem) Anyone have any other suggestions?

Check your valve o-rings one at a time and make sure that they form a good seal. I had the same issue you describe and it turned out I had a valve o-ring that was undersized and allowing air to pass by and it will leak out of the noid area.

I have the same issue.
I am very interrogative about the eye wiring position. Do the wire have to run under the noid or along the noid ?
Mine are running under and they are flatenned and I cant screw the frame enough to seal this place.
So the question is : where should I put these "f...g" wires ? is ther enough room along the noid ?

The wires branch off around the noid and run along the sides of it. Do not run them under the noid!
