Stab rebuild?

A while ago I picked up a 'Phoon with velocity issues, and upon consultation with you experts I replaced the Stab with another one and the problem disappeared.
My question now:
Should I rebuild the old Stab or just send it to Palmer's for a rebuild?

To be honest. Just send it to palmers.

Only one reason why I say this. Its because they use red loctite to hold them together. And if you don't heat them enough to loosed it up you will sctratch or mangle the finsh on them. Better to let Palmer do it and know it will come back looking the same as it do's now.

just my 2 cents

Hmmm... I've not had that problem.

I've rebuilt both a male and female stabe bought directly from pps and the came apart and went back together pretty easily.

Just take the velocity nut out and use a nickel to take the bottom off and slide out the internals. Replace all the seals (lube a bit first with air tool oil)
clean out the inside, reassemble, drop some oil in your asa, air up and dial in the pressure.

depends on if it is newer or older. the older did not have the slots for removal. the older ones seem as if they did not intend you to get in them, lol.. if you plan on reannodizing it, you can cut a slot for the nickel, or I think they sell the slotted cap separately too.
enjoy,

That video from THAT place is very good. Try it first, if you muck it up send it home.

According to Palmer's, they don't use any sort of thread locker on their stabilizers.

However, I just had to send one back to them. When I tried to take it apart (following the unofficial video's instructions), I could *not* get the end cap off. I actually bent a nickel trying. heating it up did nothing. Maybe it rusted shut, or maybe someone at the shop did not get the memo on the official "no thread locker" policy.

I don't know about that. It may even just be the older ones. But I've taken a few apart that were red loctited. Or it's just my luck lol.

mine doesn't even have the nickle slot any suggestions?

Was thinking of drilling two small holes and using a set of snap ring pliers.
