Weird problem I've never had before. I'm trying to get this old teardrop working. When I roll the LPR up to operating pressure it presurizes the ram in the forward position instead of back in the firing position. I'm thinking solenoid issue. It has a Skinner noid. seems to click with authority. I pulled the spool out of it, blew it out to clear any debris, lightly lubed it and replaced, same results. your thoughts are appreciated.

Well, I figured it out.It was a bit of a noodle baker. Anybody want to know what it was?

I'll tell you anyway.

Seems the return spring was worn out. That's the spring that pushes the spool back to the beginning of the cycle after you fire. It's located under the end cap(Skinner noid) opposite the end the wires come out of. Just removed the cap and stretched the spring out to give it some more tension. seems to cycle fine....for now.

Yeah, Humphrey noids don't have return springs, they use air to move the spool back to neutral.
