retro valve ult leak

so ive got a retro valve with a ult trigger pull kit and lvl 10 bolt. when i air it up i can hear air coming from the trigger rod area. when i pull and hold the trigger the gun fires and resets no problem and the leak stops. it resumes leaking when i let go of the trigger.

- as far as i know the lvl 10 system works as intended and isnt the problem. i can only hear leaking from the on/off area.

ive tried putting 5 drops of oil into the macro fitting and dry firing but it still leaks.

any suggustions?

thanks
stemmy

i thought you weren't supposed to use a ult in the rt valves unless it was drilled for it

The ULE Trigger Pull Kit is best utilized in an AGD marker powered by a valve based on our Reactive Trigger technology. The ULT is a drop in upgrade for the X-Valve and the newer RT Pros (those equipped with an all black valve).

This on/off assembly will fit and is recommended for the following:

X-Valves
Aluminum RT-Pro Valves

This on/off assembly can fit but is NOT recommended for the following:

E-Mags w/ double o-ring top
Micro E-Mags
MiniMag AIR Valves
68Automag Valves
Classic Automag Valves
HyperMags
SmartMags

This on/off assembly will NOT fit the following:

Stainless Steel RT-Pro Valves
Retro Valves
E-Mags w/ single o-ring top
Original RTs w/ Banjo Bolt valve
BlackVCG's ULT Thread

Do you have a pic of your valve?

The last link I have is pretty extensive in its coverage of the ULT.

I don't think you could assemble an incompatible RT valve with a ULT, since it should be hanging out of the bottom of the valve and not fit in the body. You may have a milled or drilled valve that accepts the ULT.

Since it doesn't leak with the trigger back, your top and top-side ULT on/off o-rings are good.

If the valve was altered to take the ULT, I would look in sidewalls of the on/off pocket and make sure they are smooth. After that, put some synthetic grease on the base o-ring and the pin o-ring inside the on/off. If that does anything for the leak (maybe temporary) you will know more.

There are only a couple of orings in the ULT. Rebuild it. Most likely its either the top one.

Getting an early start on the weekend, BE? Everyone else around my place is bugging out.

There's four o-rings in there, but the pin top and the inside body rings are the trouble makers. The pin top o-ring is easy to replace, but it seems to be working.

That tiny inside-lower-body (and pin) o-ring usually has to be ordered, and then you have to be very careful trying to separate the pin halves, or order a new pin with the o-ring. That's why I bother going around the rest of it first, that pin o-ring is a pain.

I'm experiencing this same exact problem... I've completely gone through this marker to make sure it isn't anything else. Leaks when gassed up, but immediately stops after the trigger is pulled. No leak down the barrel. It is definitely coming from this assembly. I've lubed everything up and gone through the ULT several times and everything looks to be in order.

So, I'm at a loss. Anyone know the Oring sizes on this thing? I believe it's the "White O-Ring" in this picture that is the culprit.
