Marker won't shoot with feather touch

Purchased a used Luxe 1.5 with a 2.0 core. It came with the feather touch screw out and it shoots great. I installed the feather touch and it just puffs. Should I have to change dwell settings when using the feather touch. All the settings are stock.

How far in do you screw the manifold in?

Feathertouch screw is either in or out. Try upping the dwell to 18.

i think the dwell difference is 2 between having it in and out. Feather touch in has you raise it by like 2. I was running mine at 16-18 today in NY where it reached a high of like 40 but was between 32-38 most of the day

The manifold screw is approx. one and a half turns in from flush. I will try upping the dwell a couple milliseconds. Thanks

When I first got my OLED it shot perfectly with the FT in....than after a few months it started acting up. I played around with the settings but eventually just took the FT out. It shoots great without it.

I up'd the dwell but it did not shoot until dwell was at 21 ms. I also had to up the hpr to get to our 285 fps field velocity. At field velocity I could not tell the difference in shot quality so I took the feather touch back out. It might be better for brittle paint but I'll go with better efficiency due to lower dwell and hpr settings.

Could be a clogged manifold. When I have more time I'll see about cleaning it out. Do you have a recommendation on how to clean it.

Thanks
