Superbolt Pump Leak Help

So I have a Psychoballistics superbolt pump I am in the process of trading and haven't aired it up in some time. Earlier today as I was about to package and ship I decided to air it up.

Anyway the gun began to leak air really quickly. As soon as I pulled the pump arm and cocked it the leak stopped. As soon as I shot it it began to leak again. I'm not exactly experienced with cockers but I supposed the valve is staying open when it shouldn't. Help me out guys, I really need to resolve this.

Thank you.

Have you contacted the person you are trading with yet?
They need to know this.

I did inform him. Told him I'm not shipping it out until I get it in working order. I've been on the receiving end of "sold as is" and wouldn't do it to anyone.

How much do regs go for these days?

You don't have a regulator on the gun?
You may be able to fix this problem, at least the leaking, without one.
Unscrew the cocking rod from the rear of the gun and push the backblock back. Under the backblock you should see a silver disc. This is the velocity adjuster. Use an allen wrench to back that disc out a few turns, re-install the cocking rod, air up the gun again, and see if the leak stops.

I have a reg on it. I played with the velocity adjuster and it didn't help. Tried the regulator as well but either. I'm twisting the wrong screw or the regulator is dead and or needs a rebuild.

a dead regulator would cause it to over pressurize, which would cause the valve to seal so i don't think thats the problem.

Again, the likely effect of that would be for the reg to freeflow and run higher pressures, making this problem unlikely.

Have you tried backing that velocity adjuster all the way out?

ALSO make sure you re turning the reg pressure UP and not down, down will make it leak more

So it sounded like the leak was going away as I was turning up the regulator. Then realized the tank was empty. -_-

Tech refuses to work on it claiming his supplier is bad with getting parts to him. Out of curiosity are valves for cockers interchangeable?

What valve were you trying to use?
I've been able to run My superbolt with the stock valve from a 1998 autococker.

Idk, I'm not sure about the valve yet. There are a lot out there, just need to get the valve removal kit and go from there. Any will do really, so long as the marker works well.
