I got it apart, lubed, changed the AOC and valve rings but I am still having a pretty good leak out around the noid. The noid gasket appears to be in good shape. My HPR velocity adjuster is almost all the way screwed in, but it is shooting paint around 270-290ish. Is it my AOC? is the low pressure too high? you can see from the video that it is cycling fine. i think the noid is alright. What would be my next troubleshoot? I have never adjusted the AOC, I don't have the gauges to get it perfect, but I don't anticipate buying any either. I don't want this to become a huge money pit.
There seems to be a little scratch inside
the bottom tube from where the valve was removed previously. It runs from the valve set-screw hole in the bottom of the body to the end. I think there was a rough spot on the valve and it was pushed out anyway. Could this be an issue? It doesn't feel bad, and I'm assuming those rings in the AOC/lower tube area should all still seal.
I will post a video of the leak and it cycling as soon as it loads.
help me tribal folk....
