Leaky air passage...

I've got a leak coming from the back of my quest that I'm 95% sure is coming from the left air channel. The thing that puzzles me is that I put thread sealer on it but the leak persists. The bolt orings are new which leads me away from that. It airs up & cycles fine as well. Anyone else have problems with theirs?

Well when I'm wrong I'm wrong. Just for the heck of it I decided to wrap the bolt cap threads in Teflon tape. The leak all but went away. It's still leaking from the screw in the bolt cap though.

yea I've had this issue, just need to find the right oring to put on the far back of the pin there. I lube that back one as well as the threads with dow 55

So you have an oring behind the threads on the bolt cap? One that's not meant to be there? I also thought of that but I'm still puzzled as to why it leaks to begin with. The rearmost oring is new & lubed.

He means the one in front of the threads. If it's not sealing, you'll get a leak out the back. If I understood correctly, your leak is coming out of the bolt guide's set screw, the one used to seal off the HP feed to the valve chamber, right?

If it's both (try not to use teflon tape), you should remove the cap's set screw (#7 in the sticky's diagram) and apply blue loctite, then screw it back in, then change the o'ring in front of the threads (#4 on the right on the sticky's diagram) and lube it with dow55. That should fix the leak on both locations.

Well my quest is actually leak free at the moment. I changed the rearmost oring but still had the leak. I tefloned the set screw as well as the bolt cap threads which stopped the leaks. I figure Teflon above the noid shouldn't cause any damage. Like I said, I don't understand why it still leaked after changing orings but I guess as long as its not leaking now I'm good.

Sometimes the o'ring tolerances are off and it'll still leak, happened to me with a snatch pin until I greased the o'ring with dow55, I still changed it just to be on the safe side. And no, if it's been applied well, the teflon tape shouldn't mess with anything; considering where it was used.

The teflon tape comment may stem from my being a shop tech and having seen what some people will do with teflon tape and then convince themselves that they fixed the issue... until they have to bring it to the shop so I can fix it for real; and then I'll have to unwind a couple of yards of teflon tape and put a couple of drops of blue loctite or change an o'ring or 2 (not that that's your case, it's just annoying for the tech when it is).
