Massiv leak on a viking!!!

OK!
I am officially stumped! Have a leak on one of my vikings that I do not understand. I stripped it from parts, put some other parts on it, now the air goes into the gun but leaks out from the little hole next to the reg on the bottom side of the gun. Tried to put all the original part back on the gun, same leak. The little hole is the one behind the reg infront of the frame. It is driving me MEGA crazy!!!!

Anyone that has a clue?

Sounds like one of those nasty little LPR o-ring leaks. They're a pain to put back in without chewing them up.

I agree; sounds like you clipped one of the lpr orings when inserting it. You'll want to replace them with 015 durometer 70 urethane o-rings (don't bother trying any other material or a harder durometer, they won't work). Remove the sidewinder and use your pinky or an allen wrench to guide them through when reinstalling the lpr, and use a healthy amount of oil. I chewed up several of these before I got the technique down so if you have to order the orings, make sure to get several extra.

Had some good tips. funniest thing is that I have done this so many times and it never happened before. Now this little viking is being so troublesome. I will try out all the tips I got tonight as I was tired like crazy last night when I did it. Will post how it all went with a pic of the viking when it works
