    Posted: 29 September 2011 at 7:46pm
K so i got out my gun  today to see if it was still in good shape since i havent used it in a couple months and i noticed that when i screw my co2 tank on theres a leak inside the gun. so i took it apart and checked to see if i could find anything that was wrong...... but i couldnt. im guessing the leak is coming from inside the Power tube. Any suggestions?

Wrong section homeslice.

Anyway, I would put a few drops of oil in the ASA when installing the tank, and then put some hand soap or dish detergent where the steel braided hose screws into the tank. If the soap bubbles, its a leak there.

what SSOK said. Also, i'd check the O-rings to make sure they were still in tact...might be as simple as changing those

Wrong subforum, but thanks for reminding me of the time tippmann replaced my cracked power tube for free.

wrong forum ^^^ lol.
 
Typically leaks are from bad o-rings. I run silicone O-rings in my tippmanns, as they are bulletproof, and I haven't had one leak yet. (I change them every 2 years anyways)
 
I would bet it is your power tube...
 
this video shows how to clean and oil it properly, this should be done every 2 years for sure...
