Well...

I'm trying to take out my powertube on my 98c to replace the valve [busted o-ring in the valve], but the powertube won't come out. I took out both of the screws holding it in, but it is still in there solid.

So how do I take the powertube out? An explanation or a link would be good...

Thanks.

i would hold on the elbow grease for a moment... do you have an r/t or a cyclone feeder? if you do [and they work properly] then you will have to remove the hose from the exaust port in the powertube. then, remove the two screws that are about an inch apart of the right side of the 98c [after, of course, dissasembling the marker] and you should be set to go. the powertube should always be the very last thing you are removing from your marker when dissasembling.

When removing the CVX Valve from inside the Power Tube, DO NOT use a Vise Clamp, using a Vise Clamp will make it more difficult to slide out the Valve.

1. Look around your home and look for either a Metal Rod or an Unsharpened Pencil

2. Put in a couple of drops of Marker Oil in both ends of the Tube

3. With one hand, firmly grip the Power Tube

4. With the other hand, place the Rod or the Pencil and slide it through the Front End of the Power Tube and on the Flat Surface of the Valve (avoid pushing in the Valve Pin).

5. When you have the Rod or Pencil on the Flat Surface of the Valve....PUSH EXTREMELY HARD

It will take awhile, but keep trying and the Valve will come out...Ive done this several times to the Power Tube to Push Out the Valve and it always works for me.

Side Note: If thats too much work for you, bring the Power Tube to the Pro Shop and let them handle it.

If you do Evil Fingers method of removing it, make sure you take OUT the velocity screw, screw it all the way out, yeah i forgot that and ended up cracking my power tube. :rolleyes:

In or Out, it doesnt matter, because once the Marker is reassembled, the user/owner is still required to Chrono the marker anyway.

^Not sure if your getting what he is saying. The velocity screw needs to be out to push the valve out from the front of the powertube. If the screw is in you will be pushing on it instead of the valve, and could crack the powertube by doing so.

Wrong, the Velocity Screw is not inside the Valve...the screw sits near the Front End of the Valve.

Heres an inside pic of the 98 and you can clearly see where the Velocity Screw is located

Evil, he means if the screw is still in the air way you'd push on the velocity screw instead of the valve.
