Excalibur Solenoid Leak
I have what seems to be a leaking rear solenoid on my 2001-20002 Excalibur. I thought it was one of the three small orings between the solenoid and the body, but it appears to be leaking out of the front threaded port on the left hand side. This port is labeled "EA". I've always been a mechanical gun guy so this is my first dealing with solenoids. I have a pretty good mechanical background [build motors/transmissions/etc] so is there a way to modify, fix, jump start, or reset the valves in these solenoids?
The solenoid is a MAC 44B-AAA-GDS0-1DA [6VDC, 3 watts] Vacuum to 120psi capable.
I've seen these on ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Viking-Excal...#ht_665wt_1091 That claim they work with Vikings/Excals but it also says they may need some "modification".
I also found these on my internet search for an answer: http://www.airsoldier.com/mm5/mercha...Code=SOLENOIDS and http://www.airsoldier.com/mm5/mercha...Code=SOLENOIDS
Anyone have any advice/tips on getting this fixed? I do have the AKA parts kit and gauge to work on this gun as well.
I was really excited about this gun when I bought it a year ago, but the gun showed up with this leak so it's sat around a while I've tinkered with other stuff and tried to get help from the seller. The seller of course claimed there was no leak, blah blah blah. My buds are wanting to get a game going on May 18th and I'd like to get some eliminations with my so called "ancient guns".
Oddly in my mind a Viking/Excal is still a newer electro gun... I feel old, lol.
Thanks in advance for any help.
Been playing since 1995...old school?
