How do you take apart the 98's valve? I already have it out of the powertube, just need to get it apart.

Why do you need it apart?

If there's no reason, dont mess with it, its not worth breaking it for no reason :ninja:

A new complete valve assembly is only $30.00. Save yourself the headache and just buy a new valve. If you just have to take yours apart there's a round metal snap ring on the end. You have to get that snap ring out. I've done it and it's a pain. Good luck.

Yeah I put it back. I just wanted to take it apart to examine it for this valve mod Ive heard of to expand the air channels. But since it sounds like its a pain to disassemble Ill leave it alone.

Step 1:
Remove Gas Line

Step 2:
Remove Velocity Screw

Step 3:
Use a Screw Driver or Allen Wrench to push valve out of powertube

Step 4:
Use a screwdriver or Allen to push the end cap in the valve inward past the airline input and pin it with an allen wrench or similar object.

Step 5:
Use a pick or jeweler's Screw driver and pry off the clip that holds the endcap in the valve.

The grooves on the outside of the valve are the air channels. I've never heard about the valve mod you're talking about. Have you Maj Tom?

Yeah I actually did it one my A5. I widend the air channels on the out side of the valve body and contoured them so they flow better.

Is that to increase velocity for using a weaker spring or does it lower the report or reduce turbulance for better accuracy or what. I'm intrigued. I wish I knew as much as you have forgotten about paintball markers.

Just gives it les turbulance when the air rushes out which theoretically could improve accuracy and gas consumption from the reduced drag. But realistically probably not enough to notice, I was just bored one day :unsure:

Ahhh, less turbulance. Makes sense. I saw a show about a company that makes water fountains that shoot perfectly smooth streams of water. They said the trick is to achieve absolutely no turbulance. So doing the same thing for air can't hurt.

But is it really worth all that trouble? I guess i believe in the saying "if it ain't broke don't fix it" , too many times a have made things worse. Good luck if you go for it!

Oh man. You guys know waaay more than me about internals! I don't think I'll take my 98C apart unless I need to clean it lol

Not really. Alot of us really like to tinker with our markers and what seems like alot of trouble to some people is just something fun to do for the rest of us. Right now I'm waiting for the paint to dry on my old 98C so I can go spray another coat on it. To paint it I had to completely dis-assemble the marker and sandblast the reciever halves. I'm always doing SOMETHING to my gear and usually it's not something really needed but I just like messing with it.

Exactly, I was bored one day. School was done for the semester, nothing good on TV, and it was dumping freezing rain so I just decided to disassemble my marker (clean and lube) and a friend called shortly after to see if I had any wheels for a grinder so he could port his intake manifold. Then the idea hit me. Why not do it to my A5. So that kept me busy for an hour or so . Then my dad got the bright idea to put the plow on the mower in case it started to snow. :dry:

MAj Tom, you said you got your A-5 to 425(?) PSI with a Jet Click, QEV, Tn Hammer and Metal Powertube without an LPK. So do you think I could get my 98 to around 400 PSI or less with a Tn Hammer and Metal Powertube (DOP Pro-Seal) but without a LPK or Mod'ed Valve? Because I dont want to blow $100+ on the LPK, since Tippmann wont sell the valve seperately (I emailed them about and they said it can only be bought in the kit) if I can get to 400 PSI without it. Id love to get to 250 PSI or less like Sartek did with a LPK (he got it down to 180 PSI, but it only recocked when a ball was in the breach) but its not worth $100+.

And why doesnt anyone make a aftermarket Low Pressure Valve for Tippmanns? They make plenty of non-Tippmann LP Chambers but the only valves are the stock and Tippmann's LPK Valve.
