ok, im taking my marker appart to polish it and its all out expect the power tube, do i have to remove it to polish the internals? i checked the manual and it said something about needing to re-seal the valve or something. how do i remove it? there are valve screws on the side but i want the power tube out, not the valve right?? any help would be greatly appreciated

You don't HAVE to take it off. Because I had one for years, and I only took it out once, and that was to change it from a stock power tube, to an after market power tube.

It's probably a good idea to take it off to clean it real good. Just unscrew the screws in the back, and it should come off. Also, after your done cleaning it, oil it a little.

ok, well the gun is only 8 months old and only maybe had 1000-1500 round through it. so i dont think it needs cleaning. if the tube gets dunked in water will it still work? in the manual is said teflon tape was required to seal it, back up, thats why im nervous about removing it. or am in misunderstanding something?

Make sure it's dry. Rust is bad.

You will want to buy a roll of teflon tape anyway, it is handy to have around. But remove the two screws on the right clamshell of the marker. There may be loctite on there so you will have to pull it a tiny bit to get it off. I never teflon taped mine when I had it, except where the braided steel air line goes into the powertube. But you shouldn't have to take the air line off of the powertube anyway.

I had my 98 for 3 years and never took out the powertube. Just made sure the insides were clean and oiled. It's a loaner now and is still going strong.

Probably not. Only if it starts leaking.

No Loctite or Teflon is needed, just Torque the Allen Wrench slightly and thats it.

You dont really need to Polish that area, because there is No Friction between the Rod and the Walls.
