Well I can hear the microswitch click and the shot counter registers each trigger pull/allen wrench push.

while the frame/tray is off, there should be a small button on the noid itself, push that. that button is a manual cycle, and will tell you whether its working or not. a pic of the harness would help, even if the harness looks okay, the solder joints could be broken under the heat shrink.

OK, the solenoid functions! Using the manual button gassed up cycled the marker.

Pulled the harness out of the gun, but I'll need to borrow a better camera to take pics of the harness.

However, the microswitch clicks, the shot counter on the lcd registers each trigger pull but the gun will not cycle. This makes me think the bad connection is between the board and the solenoid. There are two kinda ugly connections not quite sealed with heat tubing on those wires.

Thoughts?

If you're getting the solenoid to click manually there is some kind of connection. I would check your harness. They are pretty weak but if you give it a slight tug and the wires stay put, I would check the board settings are right. My lcd bushy was doing the same thing and most of it was a combo of valve spring (way too light) lpr and board settings. Mine would click and make a bit if a woosh sound from the noid but would not move the bolt. Turned out my board settings were all messed up. Highest dwell settings possible will not move the bolt lol.

Is your hpr working properly?

when you air up the marker does the bolt move back? if so and it is not cycling your noid could be sticking from sitting so long. some lubes can turn gummy over time and cause issues. so it could still "click" when you pull the trigger but the spool doesn't move so the marker never fires. also parker noids have a spring in the end to return the spool to the "cocked" position in the end cap. they are not very strong. they get weak over time. i have found removing the endcap and stretching the spring a bit can add new life to the parker noids with a weak return spring. i may be totally off base here since i didn't read the whole thread. sry.

PostPosted: Thu Jun 23, 2011 12:54 pm    Post subject: Re: De-mothballing Bushmaster

So I am out of air until Saturday but to recap:

HPR gauge reads 200
Slight leak on one of the 1/8 nipples on the LPR but I could not see how this would be an issue
Bolt goes back when gassed
Gun will cycle when gassed and using the manual button on the solenoid
LED, LCD come on
Microswitch clicks, LCD registers trigger pulls and I can use the trigger fire mode selection
Harness looks good to me, no obvious damage
Solenoid has been cleaned out, the springs seemed fine, both in the solenoid and the valve spring.
All easily accessible O-rings have been cleaned off and lubed

Problem: gun will not cycle from trigger pulls

So the board setting idea is interesting, when I get some air I will set it back to the last known good config and see what happens. Esp. considering that the solenoid will cycle manually, as someone suggested it is getting power. That makes me think the problem is with the board settings as the microswitch is at least closing a circuit and all other components between switch --> board --> noid/valve seem to be functioning.

Thoughts?
