PostPosted: Tue Jul 04, 2006 10:46 pm    Post subject: Disassembling a 2k2-2k3 BKO ram (old style)

Hi Folks,

I'm in the process of trying to take apart the ram so that I can clean and lube the ram. I've played with it for 3 yrs and haven't cleaned or lubed it.

I've been able to disassemble it down to the core... ie I've been able to take the aluminum tube that houses the ram shaft, out from the black manifold/housing. I noticed that there is a metal plug at the end of the aluminum tube (the end opposite to the hammer).

How does one go about removing that metal plug? There's no slots to try to unscrew it.

It's been working fine up until recently when I did the homemade venting anti-chop mod. I think the anti-chop mod works... chronies at 280fps at 190-200psi. BUT... if I leave the marker sitting around for a few minutes, there's severe FSDO. I suspect that I finally do need to clean and lube up the ram.

Thanks for any help.

Cheers

Doc, I think you may need to slap a strap wrench on the back end to unscrew it. I'm no BKO guy, but I think that plug is a threaded cap.

No no... the rams with the cap came out after my model. This plug is actually in the ram sleeve itself. The ram sleeve slides out. From what I can see, the rear cap is not removable... unlike the later models. The plug sits flush with the end of the sleeve so there's no way to grasp it with anything.

I should've taken some pics of it. Sad

Thanks though.

Cheers

Mhmm.. I actually took one of those older style rams, and drilled the cap out of the sleeve, so I could disassemble/reassemble it at will. Man, that was a pain in the butt.

I'm sure ICD could help me out..... but for a fee. Smile

So that aluminum plug serves no purpose? It looks like it's the back stop for the ram piston.

Blah. Did they pressure fit that piece in?

Man... more drilling.... more equipment.... my wife is gonna kill me.

Thanks.

I just used a tiny little desktop drill press.. cost me $50. Smile

And no, I don't see what purpose that plug serves.. the stop for the hammer (which is really all that matters in this case) is the front piece of the tube the piston rides in.

I drilled mine out, made a new one and press fit it back in. You'll have to lube it through the holes still. That was one tough lesson.
