nah

it doesn't matter if it's perfect, I'm gona put it in the end cap and seal around it with epoxy.

now a question:

the tube that runs from the ram, actually runs outside the gun through a small track in the raised groves.

this would mean it wouldn't be airtight on a 98. now, woud it be better If I were to fill in that gap or should I just leave it? would filling the gap actually hurt anything?

why do you need to fill in the gap? because doesnt the hose need to go to the solenoid through the channel, or are you re-routing the hose somewhere else?

not sure yet, may re-rout may not.

If I decide to though, should I fill it?

or is it a vent for exhaust gasses or something that would be bad to cover up?

 

actually... if not, where do the gasses vent out of?

I don't understand what you are asking. Maybe pics?

Gasses vent through the noid.

Gas vents out of the noid and into the grip frame/atmosphere.

I woudn't fill it, just in case you need to put it how it was.  its just there for the hose from the noid goes.  and the gases leave the ram when its fully extened out.
what?

ok, serious progress made on mod

all i have left is to:

-file metal us5 body to fit air tubes up to ram (finishing tonight hopefully)

-wire and solder battery wires (very last step)

-find way to mount ram (tomorrow... gona be interesting)

... the cool thing is that I replaced the stock microswitch with another microswitch with a roller, then modified where it hits the trigger to be flat... not sure if it helps anything but it's cool and seems more stable.

just a question:

-I have two wires, a red and a black coming from the board... they are the battery wires but I must run the on/off switch between them. Should I attach it to the red wire, or the black wire and then into the battery? or does it not matter?

Strictly speaking, in this circuit it doesn't matter. But, IIRC the black wire is negative. I put my switch on that side.

I usually wire through red. Just preference really. That reminds me, I need to put an on/off switch on my 98, because I hate have to disconnect and reconnect the battery everytime I play a round.

Ok

didn't get tubes fit today, i am doing them with a small file that's meant for filing plastic and metal shavings so it takes a while.

lol

it's very hard to cut a 1" hole into a 1.25" piece of round plastic with a spade bit.

It didn't turn out bad, it should work but right now i'm hand-filing it to fit.

awwww yeah

it works!... and on the first try 1:30 in the morning, probably woke the whole street up.

right now it just needs finishing touches... tomorrow i will shoot paint through it and post pics.

 

..... oh yeah and some oil would probably help cause it's extremely loud

bty... is there any trick to removing macroline from the fittings?

Push in on the fitting, then pull the line out.

Carl,

Really would like to see some pictures...finished or not. Particularly the fit of the ram and why there was difficulty?

problem...

upon testing the bolt released from the linkage arm.

not good... opening now to check for damage...

 

could be because:

A) it is unlubricated

b) my halo was out of batteries so i had to use the rip drive

...no serious problems just a broken ball.

do you think I should super glue the linkage arm to the bolt?
