Leak from reg vent - the 'gat'

Recently picked up my first angel, must say I'm quite impressed. But, it has developed a small leak from the vent hole on the hpr. I've replaced the orings on the mini reg housing, lubed them, and reinstall'd. The leak persists and am curious to know if it could be caused by something else or if the orings I'm using have to be the problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Do you mean the vent hole on the HPR/mini reg? If so, pull the small piston and shim stack piston and lube the o-rings on it.

Wolf - yes. I wanted to ask before I pulled that c clip to take a gander.

Ryan - No, I put my hp tank on there.. user error I see.

I'll report back once I check out the piston.
Thanks

Everything seemed to be in place, not oring damage, they weren't dry. Should I just clean/grease and reinstall, or something more while its apart? Because that clip ain't a joke

I would replace the small oring on the large and small piston. Grease them up, and re-install.

like you said, that clip is a pain, you may as well make sure you're putting it together for a long time.

I don't see the ball bearing. Is it still in there?? That should go in first before the rest of the guts.

Leaks from the vent hole 99% of the time are caused by the reg spool o-rings. It's easy to get really tiny nicks in them when re-installing due to the threaded portion at the bottom of the foregrip housing, so don't rule that out just because the o-rings are new. Use plenty of grease on them. Large piston o-rings would be the next thing to check.

Removing the circlip from the reg becomes exponentially easier with a pair of circlip pliers. You can find them at just about any hardware or automotive store. If you plan on keeping this gun for any appreciable amount of time it'd be well worth picking up a pair. Make sure you get ones designed for internal circlips. The ones designed for external circlips are spring loaded to splay the clip out when squeezed - you want exactly the opposite. A pair of mini needle nose pliers will also work, although the clip has a tendency to want to slip off sometimes with them.

It was in the housing still, but good looking out

I replaced the out side orings again, and lubed the others. I turned the reg with the threads when installing it this time. Now leak free almost certain I got a small cut the first time, like you said.

I used a pair of needle noose, wasnt too terrible.

Thanks Dr.
