Vis has small leak in the breech

My vis engine has a small leak in the breech. I have changed ever oring in the engine beside the bolt and it is still leaking. When i put my pressure tester on it has no leak. Would dow 55 solve this issue or maybe its the donut?

I would not use Dow 55 on the VIS engine. Do you have a spare doughnut to try? I would also make sure the 006 on the input on the back of the engine is also looks good and not nicked. I have seen too many breach leaks coming from that oring. Also make sure the inside of the body and that the two orings on the front of the engine are also looking good/clean.

Of course, take the above advice into account.

I had the same issue and rebuilt the engine. The leak persisted. I sent it to F1 and they rebuilt it - the leak persisted. The fix was replacing the blast guide.

I have seen one other report of a bad blast guide causing this type of leak. The F1 guys had seen it a few times. It's pretty odd. It is just something that you need to keep in mind.

Yep, both the blast guide and doughnut can contribute to this type of leak.

I asked F1 if I can lube the small oring inside and they told me I can and I put dab of lube inside and looks like the leak stopped. Do you replacing the donut?

It's the round brown thing between the two body halves, the end of the blast guide seals into it. You just take it out with your fingers...or something soft stuck inside of it. Don't scratch it!
