Autococker for Idiots Chapter 1: I have a leak.

Alrighty, so i recently acquired my first autococker (which i know little to nothing about) only to find that the pneumatics are leaking. I pinpointed the leak to the spot in the first picture. The gun setup is (as far as i know) 1.06 eblade, unknown body (thinking shocktech?) and planet pneumatics. bolt matches the body, so i'd say that's stock. any help would be appreciated, as i am an idiot when it comes to cockers.

Not PE pneumatics.. Crappy PsychoBallistics ram, WGP 2nd gen tickler LPR, Eblade noid..
Ditch the ram for anything else.. WGP, ANS, PPS, CCM, PE/Belsales all are good rams.

The body is a psycho ballistics superbolt. A chineese cocker that has lured many new owners to their doom..

From the pictures it looks like it's the QEV that's leaking.

Take the QEV off the ram, take the barb off the QEV, and re attach the barb to the ram sans QEV.

It should work, but you should REALLY think about getting a new ram. They're really terrible.

I agree that's a terrible ram but to get a new one I believe u would have to change the front block as well i have a physcobalistics but I converted mine to a ccm pump due to the problems I had with the front pneumatics.

Well dark is right but ram wise I would still reccomend a shocktech ram or a nexus ram there the best IMO but can be pricey.

those rams are notorious for leaking. they're pretty easy to open up and put some dow55 to swell the o-ring on the shaft, thats what i did to mine. or it might just be leaking from where the qev threads into the ram in which case all it needs is a little sealant on the threads or an o-ring in between. unless you own a bob long gun thought you probably dont have any dow55 around, so any ram will be an upgrade lol. wouldnt be hard to find a chrome wgp one in the bst, ans ones new are pretty cheap and work great, their smaller bore makes them the fastest. belsales are arguably the nicest overall, but twice the price.

the wgp lpr should be dandy though. also has an older wgp regulator which are pretty good, you just have to take them apart to adjust the pressure which can be a hassle.

and yes, thats the stock bolt. it should be some kind of twist lock i think. these guns are knock-offs of the dye cockers. the bodies are ok, they're some of the lighter ones out there so they can make a good project gun. but the pneumatics were pretty much garbage.

actually, if its leaking from there its most likely from where the qev threads into the ram. if it was the ram shaft o-ring it would be leaking our the solenoid, since it would be going past the shaft o-ring.

quick way to tell if its the ram shaft o-ring: pull hose off front barb, gas up, if air comes out of the ront barb its a leaky ram.

(id probably dow55 it anyway lol)

Ya usually those qevs have an o run that will push out I use them on my cocker with a wgp nickel ram and my solution was to use. Blue loctite to seal it

Yeah i've had three of them and only one had a smooth stroke the back block only matched up to the body on one of them, with some patience and replacing the front pnuematics you can make a decent cocker, but its hardly worth the trouble. especially since you can get a decent wgp body for around the same price. i say take the e frame and find better body ditch that ram and and stock lpr (if it's still the stock one) you'll be better off. like i said i have three of them and i never play with any of them. hope this doesn't discourage you from the cocker world. once you get a decent setup and you know how to trouble shoot and maintain them your going to love playing with them.
