Sounds great! I happen to be an NJ Devils fan
By cup seal, is he referring to a QEV diaphragm? Feel free to email me pictures of what you need at [email protected]

I get asked about 09 pilot valves weekly. Unfortunately I cannot help right now, but I have decided to look into these in order to offer a bit more assistance than simply suggesting ebay... At this point, I would recommend servicing the solenoid. Sounds easy enough except for the fact that solenoid service kits are about as hard to come by as the pilot valve. I'll let you know if I find anything.

Update: 8/27/2021

Time sure does fly...

Thanks to all customers and future customers for your patience as my wife and I have taken the next step on our life journey... buying, renovating, and moving into a house. I finally get a workshop, and not a small desk in the corner of our bedroom

Check it out!

8/27/2021 Update CONTINUED

It hasn't been all work and no play though... Here's what I accomplished throughout the past few months of craziness:

Sourced an 06 Dark Ego bolt pin for a customer


Sourced a correct barrel for my Dark Ego, though it is a few shades too light


I received a few Ego8s in for rebuilds


This 1 of 25 Jungle Splash Ego8 received fresh o-rings throughout, new LP hose, new detents, new HPR and LPR piston seats, a QEV manifold service, and a new solenoid. [This photo is from before the rebuild, it appears I did not take a picture after the work]


This Chronic Ego needed fresh o-rings, new LP hose, a QEV block rebuild with new QEV diaphragms (see the photo), a new solenoid barb, and new detents.


These diaphragms are toast


CHRONIC EGO8 VIDEO

This grey/fern Ego8 required an extensive rebuild including fresh o-rings, new LP hose, QEV block rebuild with new diaphragms, new detents, new HPR and LPR piston seats, and a new solenoid
CHECK OUT THE SHOOTING VIDEO

This 06 Light Trooper Nexus Ego needed fresh o-rings, new detents, new LP hose, and a solenoid service



Work continues on the 05 XSV Ego restoration. Both grip frame screws are completely stripped as is the rammer cap.



Another SL74 with a suspected bad solenoid. After fresh o-rings, new LP hose, new detents, and the correct rammer, this Avalanche SL is shooting like it it should

8/27/2021 Update CONTINUED

Another collector sent me two origin 06 Egos and a Troll SL66 for servicing.

The Sun Origin Ego received fresh o-rings, new LP hose, new detents, a solenoid service, a new rammer bumper, and a trigger swap to a CP



Note: There is nothing wrong with the Sun Origin Ego in the video below. When installing the CP trigger I did not replace the missing trigger return spring. The magnet was not strong enough to properly operate the trigger on its own. Once I installed a spring after the video this Egos shot fantastic.

The Acqua Origin Ego needed fresh o-rings, new LP hose, a new rammer bumper, a solenoid service, new detents, and an extracted trigger screw.






Junk detents cause too many issues, so when in doubt just replace them... though there was no doubt with this set!


The SL66 needed new o-rings, new LP hose, a solenoid service, a board swap, and a rammer bumper.

Here are the 3 Egos together, and you can find shooting videos for each one underneath


Origin 06 Ego - Sun
Origin 06 Ego - Acqua
Troll SL66

Though I specialize in 05-08 Egos, I have and do work on them all.

This nice Pink Lady Ego9 was dark grey from all the dirt and old paint. It received a light restoration and full rebuild including:
- fresh o-rings throughout
- new LP hose & barb
- new detents
- serviced solenoid w/ new noid gasket
- new HPR piston
- new LPR piston seat
- new barrel jewels
