Here's what I'm looking at. I don't see a 3/16 allen screw.

Ahh, thats an odd one that I haven't seen more than a few times. Turn the small screw in to adjust the velocity, cant remember the size of the allen key needed but that is what you need to play with.

edit: this is what it normally looks like, its brass and takes a 3/16" allen key.


second edit: the idea behind that one is that you don't have the remove the cocking rod to adjust the velocity which is a pain in the *** if you cant seem to get it in the right range. That hole in the back block is so you can adjust the velocity, see how it lines up with that screw?

Okay, it was turned all the way in already. I unscrewed it a bit to see if it made much of a difference. I didn't actually put paint through it but there's no need. There still is barely any air coming out of the bolt.

Actually, try turning it all the way the other direction, that may work in the reverse of how they normally do. Turning that screw counter clockwise may push the inner plunger in, possibly. Like I said, I haven't seen many of those.

Also, if that doesn't work pull the lower tube out other than the vave(unless you have that tool) and see if the springs shot. I will try and find one tomorrow morning and measure it for you but that could be the problem. Also, its possible that the reg is not working right and you may need to pressure test it.

Also pulling that velocity adjuster out will let you know if its working too, it may be stripped or something.

Thanks, mate. I already pulled all that stuff out of the lower section when I cleaned it. I'll do it again tomorrow morning and check those items you mentioned since I don't really remember what I saw. For now, it's sleepy time. Thanks for everyone's help! I'll keep you posted!

Lol, if you are in eastern PA or NJ I can look at it if you still can't get it. If not I might be able to track down a decent 'cocker tech for you.

Good luck!

Try a different regulator. The vertical one. Preferably one with a gauge. Start at 200 psi and go up.

Thats a sweet cocker man, don't give up on her. She's worth the hassle, if not, I'll consider the broken cocker price.

Lol, that's something I have been thinking about too...

At this point its probably the velocity adjuster/spring or the main reg. I have a reg output checker here that I use to tune/check regs, really simple on/off with a bleed and gauge, works great. It doesn't do much for checking recharge speed but it can detect creep and output pressures well enough for most things. Its possible that its got something to do with the valve but I'm not sure what if he hasn't been in there.
