I have tried everything from oiling to more oiling to taking it apart and cleaning the valve and nothing is working. All my valve seems to be doing is leaking and I ordered some parts and they are on backorder. I need it fixed by the 2nd and I am in need of major help. Please help me. I know the leak is deffinatley coming from the vavlve tho. PLEASE
thanks

Do you have a stock or aftermarket spring installed? Are you putting all the o-rings and such in the correct places? Just trying to T/S and get a bit more info. How far away from Portland, OR are you?

Go to the Tippmann Website.....get the customer service number....tell them your problem....I was having serious valve problems with my A-5 (couldn't get over about 200) and Tippmann told me they were having valve problems...even though your problems not the same as mine, I got my new valve in three days.....that's freakin service....and it was FREE.... :laugh:

T/S trouble shooting! I was thinking I could take a look at it for you. I would try calling Tippmann and see what they say first.

Try this. Take the tombstone out. Look at the part of the tombstone that goes up into the marker. There's a hole there that has to seal up against an O-ring. Make sure the surface around that hole is nice and smooth. It can't have any nicks or deep scrathes there where the O-ring touches it. If needed use some fine sand paper to clean it up. Now turn the marker upside down and look into the hole the tombstone came out of. There's an O-ring there. Behind that O-ring is a flat washer. Behind the washer is a spring. Pull the O-ring and washer out. Pull the spring forward. Using two small flatblade screwdrivers stretch that spring a little by putting the screwdrivers inbetween the coils and pulling them apart. Once you get that spring stretched a little push it back into place. Now oil everything and put it all back together. A new O-ring and a thicker washer would help. God luck.
