micromag problems.

i have a micromag that slapped a warp feed on. its pretty beastly.
anyways, every now and then, when i put in the tank, itll leak out of the bleed hole on the asa right away, or in a minute, or it wont. whats with this? by the way im using a dye throttle and yes its in hydro.
also, i noticed it was shooting a little low velocity wise for my liking.
so i adjusted the back screw on the valve and attempted to find a balance between the bleed leak, the velocity, and now that i touched the back screw, the back screw leak is another weight on the balance.
i just cant find any balance between the three, or even the two leaks for that matter.
help?
pics asap.

so your leaking out of the asa, velocity adjuster and you have low velocity. I think you need a new oring on your tank(possibly new asa) and a valve rebuild kit.

Yep, tank o-ring for the ASA leak.

The gun is designed to leak out of the velocity adjustment screw if the velocity (pressure) is set too high.
This leak can also occur if a Level 10 bolt kit is installed since the Level 10 requires higher pressures to shoot the same velocity. AGD sells an updated piston assembly.

Are you using a Level 10?
Did the marker ever work properly before?

no its just level 7.
its worked great before. i love the thing. just after i touched the nut is when it leaks.

i tryed different tank orings, and it seems to be the gamble i explained before: leaks right away, leaks in a minute, or doesnt leak.

Try backing out the velocity. Like mentioned above, it leaks automatically if you turn it in too high. I would suggest cleaning it and shooting a lot of oil through it before you buy parts to fix it. Oil can fix a lot of stuff in a mag.

Yeah, what they said.
