The noid is actually a disk with a rubber plug in the center. This rubber plug opens and closes the valve for airflow to pass. My previous noid actually melted the housing around the noid from water exposure. Try these first before giving GOG a call, they have always been great over the phone and can get you a new noid/board altogether if you need. See you at dday man.
Major leak -- won't even fire...there is just a loud hissing from the air escaping.
I'm not exactly sure where the banjo fittings are. You're talking about the two round parts that connect the solenoid hoses to the board and where you screw the board into the breech, right? Those are on there pretty tight so I don't think that's the problem. Not sure where to find the rest of that either...Like I said, my technical expertise is pretty limited.
However, I did blow through what I think is the noid (the cylinder object with the long hose that connects to the board) and when I did so the air "rushed" through the banjo fitting (I think it's the banjo fitting) at the far end of the board. Not sure if that means anything or not. I've been meaning to upgrade to a blackheart board, so if I could be certain that the issue is with the board/solenoid then I'd just order a blackheart board and be done with it. I don't want to do that though unless I can be certain it isn't the regulator or some other issue.
So, you play for the K-State team? That's pretty cool -- we had a team for a couple of years back in the undergrad years, but I don't think they're around anymore unfortunately. What unit are you with? First time to D-Day?
