To install a backwards facing tank.
First take off your ASA by unscrewing the 2 bolts on the bottom of it.
This is an ASA. Itís where your tank screws in.
Next, disconnect the steel braided hose from your ASA, just be gentle and use a towel around the 90-degree elbow when using a wrench so you donít damage it.
This is a 90-degree elbow - connector between the hose and the ASA
This is steel braided hose.
Then screw on a mount to the bottom of the grip frame so the on/off will be flush with the bottom of the grip.
This is a universal mount.
Then put Teflon tape or plumbers tape on to the end of the steel braided hose you disconnected from the ASA, this will prevent air from escaping.
Wrap it tightly around the threads, not too much to suffocate it but a decent amount, and make sure you donít get it past the end of the threads. Screw the 90 degree elbow, the part you just Teflon taped, into an on/off.
This is an on/off
The 90-degree elbow should be horizontal, in line with the barrel. When you put the on/off back on your marker, make sure it faces backwards by having the threads of the on/off facing towards the barrel. The part of the hose that enters the on/off should be on your right side if your righty and left side if your lefty. The on/off has holes on both sides so you can screw in the hose in either side, and the side you donít put the hose in you either put in a gauge, optional, or a little plug thatís included with the on/off. Either way it needs to be Teflon taped, like the hose.
This is a gauge.
If you are not sure about anything or donít feel you can do it without messing up the gun, donít be ashamed I didnít know I had to get my dad to help me, take it to a local shop and they'll do it cheap as long as you provide the parts.
When itís all done it should look like this:
I'm only pointing out the tank alignment in this pic, this mod won't transform your 98 custom into a Dagger MarkII, just so you know.
All this is based on a Tippmann.
I hope this helps.
