Quick question about nt11

So, I see in the stickies about air transfer screws and I need to know if these are them. I looked through the manual and as many pictures as I could and I can't find one that labels the air transfer screws



I hope that's a good enough picture, the screws in questions are the ones under the barrel adapter/breach area.

Any help would be great, I searched "air transfer screws" and didnt get a picture or decently good description if these are them.

Can you post a link to the sticky you are talking about? Someone could help you better if they knew more info.

Those look like air passageways but there are some air transfer screws really close to the solenoid too.

Gotcha, it's this thread NT troubles it's basically a description of the manual. After I read through it I downloaded the manual itself but couldn't get any further in finding out what these are called.

But maybe I should just outline my problem? Air leaks from those very small screws. I know that those screws go into holes that are immediately above the hyper 3 and therefor are exposed to air coming out of the reg. my thought is, since there is no oring up there to just use Teflon tape to make an air tight seal around the screw threads. But I wanted to make sure I wasn't going to block off an air passage by doing that.

Thoughts?

Oh ok Im pretty sure they are air passage holes.
They use some thread sealer. I tried to use teflon tape but i had a leak.

Can i suggest if it aint broke dont mess with it.

I used automotive rtv black silicone. That did the trick to seal it.

was the marker ever disassembled for anno? Those two air passages are typically sealed with a small amount of loctite from factory. I would suggest using blue loctite to reseal them if need be.

Gotcha, they must have been removed at one point because the threads are clean and bare. I put the auto silicone sealant on,
I asked the guy at the auto store his choice between Loctite and the silicone and he said either would work. So I went with the cheaper silicone and see how it works.

Those screws block off the holes milled that take the air from the hyper 3 to the internal air passage and the solenoid.

If you suspect they're leaking just dab some soapy water on them, and if they are blue loctite will seal them fine.

Edit: entropy beat me to it.

Fixed it! The automotive silicone worked great.
