vASA leak autococker

Just put together my half block, cannot get any air into the lowers. There is a small leak on the threads of the vASA.

Any ideas?

there is a little o ring (more like an oval) on the top of your VASA when you remove it, youll need a special tool to do so, it is a 12 point 1/4 socket also check your reg o ring just in case

Try adding an Oring and the bottom of them threads some regs need that to seal it up tight.

Blue Locktite will seal that right up, but breaks off easily enough if you ever need to pull it off. Make sure also that you are not hitting your lpr when you thread it in, that can keep it from sealing.

Thanks guys I'll try that tomorrow and see if it fixes the problem. Could that be keeping the gun from gassing up?

Also, the oring on the bottom of the threads probably wont work, because it only screws in like half way, there is a solid 1/4'' of threads that don't screw in.

some teflon tape, or liquid teflon, or some sort of sealant on the top of the threads where it screws into should seal it up.

O-ring wont work, blue lock-tite is the answer as this will keep it from unscrewing while taking off the HPR for cleaning etc.. If its not going all the way into the block then your LPR shouldn't be a problem. If its a small leak then it shouldn't effect the function of the pneumatics on the front, so something else is happening up there.
