Also, I haven't fired any paint through it yet. I've just shot air since I changed the valve and main springs. Could that have anything to do with it? Will I get good effeciency when I start shooting paint through it?
What do you guys suggest? Thanks for anyones help.
OK let's see if I can do this.
1) If you haven't shot any paint yet, you don't know what your velocity is at. So you could be shooting hot and wasting gas. Could be part of your problem
2) No, a high low valve/bolt and light springs will get you LP, and not necessarily good effeciency. You shouldn't be trying to shoot at a set pressure, just to say your operating pressure is 200.
3)I would put the next heaviest valve spring in. And back your velocity adjuster all the way out. Turn the Max down to about a 150 or so and fire a ball over a chrony. Turn the input pressure up a little, chrony again. Keep doing this untill your velocity doesn't increase. At this point your marker is at it's most effecient pressure. If your velocity is a little low fine tune it with the adjuster. If it is way high or way low, you have to switch springs, and do it all over again.
4) Fine tuning a cocker isn't something you should try to do before a play day. It can take to much time to get it set up right.
Well I think that is all of it.....if I missed something, or screwed up I'm sure someone will correct me.
