Level 10 question.

Is the power tube o-ring when using a level 10 the same as normal?

Also I was told to replace the power tube o-ring because of a leak in my barrel (which stops when I press on my bolt with a squeegie). Is this info is correct?

Also for my brothers mag, which way does the reg seat go in? (one side appears fatter than the other).

And is there a tool to get the lvl 10 carrier out?!?

1) No

2)Possibly, maybe and take out a spacer.

3)Fatter side into the reg body,it should kinda wedge into the recess.

So the power tube o-rings are different? Damn.

Thanks about 2 and 3.

What about the carrier? What do you use to get it out?

i use the field strip screw to get the carrier out, just push it through the center, and you can pull out the carrier.

on question 2 - if you wiggle your bolt and the leak stops it is probably a shim issue - how many do you have in there?

the way to distinguish is to take all the shims out and gas the gun up. if it leaks then the carrier is too large - you need to go to the next one down. if it doesnt leak then add shims one at a time until it starts leaking - then take 1 back out and you are good to go.

I put two shims in there. I will try what you said next time I get my air tank filled.

Dirty: The method you gave me worked! Thanks.

Okay, I took out the shims and it still leaked. I am trying the smaller carriers now. One question, how would a smaller carrier STOP leaking? Not sure about how this works.

And why do you want as many shims in there as possible?

Update: I inserted the SMALLEST carrier and it still leaks. Anyone know what else could be causing this problem?

Try a new o-ring and start all over.

You can hand fit the carrier/-o ring combo on the bolt shaft before you assemble the valve.Pop the o-ring in a carrier and slide it on the bolt shaft.It should fit fairly snug. Change carrier sizes till you get that snug fit.Then reassemble the valve and try it.The other thing you can do is vary the tension on the field strip screw.Try and tweak it a 1/4 turn or so and see if that effects the leak.

And on the shims...yes, start with none and when everything else is good go back and add the shims as needed.
