Alright...so i have this leak...i used some lube to find bubbles and i found the leak to be between the manifold and the gasket or the noid and the gasket right below one of the screws that screws the noid into the manifold. I tried lubing the gasket to swell it up...loosening and tightening the screws etc...here are some pics to help comprehension of this leak...i need some serious help on this one guys
thanks,
aaron

more pics upon request

Is that the t2 manifold? with where it is at, i say it's one of two things:
1) bad gasket. easily solved at airsoldier.com
2) hole for the noid screw is not deep enough. solved one of several ways:
a)get a new manifold
b)send that one back to be redrilled/tapped
c)shorten that screw a smidgen <- my favorite, but you may lose some holding strength by removing thread length.

When I had a leak there it was due to an improperly machined manifold. I tried everything I knew to get rid of the leak. Nothing I did would solve it for good. I couldn't figure it out.

Finally sent it in and ICD fixed it. Of course, that doesn't apply to you. I'd suggest putting on your old manifold and see if that fixes the problem. If so, you know you'll need to speak to Greg about the one you have.

my T2 manifold did the same thing.
i sent everything to Greg and he fixed it right up and mow it works perfectly.

he said that he had a few bad manifolds.

talk to Greg I'm sure he has a solution.
