PostPosted: Thu Feb 19, 2004 10:04 pm    Post subject: Question for the pros

Hello everyone,

I have a 2001 Bushmaster on which I put a 2002 MacDev LPR, ASA, and Gladiator reg. I am getting a leak out of my stock valve, the stock ram seems to be pushing it just enough to barely brake the seal.

Is this do to the MacDev LPR spring not pushing back hard enough?

Is it possible that I simpy wore out the valve? It's common for me to put a case of paint through it on a day out.

I checked all the seals in the ram, LPR, and solenoid.

I came to the conclusion it was the valve by the fact that when I was readjusting my LPR and had the gauge in the back I had no leak. When I had the ram back in I could move it clockwise and counter-clockwise and the leak would get louder the further in I screwed the ram.

Please advise me on this.

P.S. I emailed ICD twice at their support address and never got a response Confused Sad Evil or Very Mad

ICD is slow on emails, in fact you have to emai greg directly for a response most likely.

A leak caused by the valve would sound like this, 'shhhhhhhffffffwwwwwww'

A leak out the ram would sound like this 'shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhweeeeeeeeeeee'

No, just kidding, a leak out of the valve would mean air venting down the barrel. Since you say you cleaned and check all orings, check to make sure you have a spring in your ram, if you have the stock valve spring put that in. Adjust your lpr and shoot, if adjusting it high and low does not help then I am clueless and will pray for you. Rolling Eyes

Check the orings on your ram housing. It sounds like one of them is shot.

Thanks Nator, I think you're right. Where do you suggest I get the seals from?
