Clone GT leak

Just got this in the mail today. When you gas it up, the bolt sort of flutters and only goes back about 5/6 of the way. It's leaking from the solenoid/subplate area
Interesting part, if I physically push the bolt back while gassing it up, it seals, and stays sealed, shoots, ect...
I changed bolt switch oring like manual states. Cleaned and relubed.

Change out the two power tube orings (011l and the three valve orings (017) also make sure your bolt switch oring is a (016).

Luckily it shares common sizes with my Luxe, as my spares lacked these sizes.
Had to use polyurethanes on the valve (all I had in 017). Replaced the powertube orings as well. Sealed right up. Thanks for the response

I'm guessing those are 70 duro polys and not 90. If so I've been running poly in the valve for months now and they work great, just take a little longer than buna to break in. Using them on the powertube as well.

Just wanted to chime in here and let you know that they work perfectly fine long term in that location in case you were just going to leave them temporarily until you could snag some bunas

Thanks for the input. I buy all my buna and poly's in bulk, so that's good to know!
Can anyone link me to how the GT drivetrain works? The valve moves? May order poly's to put in place of the dynamics

Polys can be good on the valve and powertube, but for the bolt switch I would use viton instead, and for the bolt keg inner / spacer inner I would leave those as buna. The polys in those 2 spots can make the bolt action a little too snug.

Here is an animation of the Droid which is virtually the same as how the Clone works.
