Ego help needed

Bro-in-law needs help on his 2005 Ego. There is a leak where the c-clips are in the noid. We disassembled it and the far right o-ring is trashed which matches where the leak is coming from.

Questions: What is this called and what o-ring is needed to fix it?



I've already said 100 Hail Velcors for allowing an electro into my house and will flog myself later. I know jack about space gun technology, though I think I understand what's going on with this piece as it looks similar to an autococker three way.

Any help is appreciated!

That should be the solenoid spool. I'm not sure of the exact o-ring size for an `05 but I *think* an 003 may fit.

Thanks guys. I ordered an o ring rebuild kit in hopes it would have the size i need. The sizes in the kit are the same posted above but just no 03. An 04 fits but it is to thick to allow the spool to go back into the housing. Trouble is cant find any 03 o rings available. We have contacted a guy hoping he would have it but we havent got a reply yet. Any ideas where this can be found?

I finally got a semi helpful reply from PE customer service

Good afternoon *****…

Unfortunately, I’m afraid that I can’t help you with a specific size for that O ring.

These spool shafts came with the O rings pre-installed. As such, we did not have spare O rings.

The best that I can offer is to sell you the complete Spool Shaft.

Originally, the spool was priced out at $114, but I am more than happy to sell you one for $35 as this is a part that likely you won’t be able to find anywhere else.

Please let me know if you would like to proceed.

Thats the same thing i have been finding also. No one can tell me the actual size. I went ahead and order a few 003 o rings from short304 so i'm hoping those will fit. I'll keep you posted if they work for future reference. And thanks by the way for all the help and going the extra mile. I really appreciate it.
