Was re-thinking the schrader valve... it really is a mystery to me why it's there. Basically for the LPR to receive air, the reg piston has to be pressing against the schrader pin... so if you have the reg turned all the way down, the lpr doesn't get air (and the pnues don't work).... you turn the reg up, moving the piston against the schrader pin, and the schrader starts letting air in.

In water supply we use valves sometimes to assist in pressure reduction and flow restriction ... I'm thinking that's why the schrader is there.... but the reg piston and reg spring do the major work on regulating the pressure.

Interesting and seemingly over complicated.

I have been following this thread as I am new to cockers and and I also have a leaky L.P.R. Mine leaks out the centre hole of my adjustment knob though. I took mine apart last nightand found a nick out of the o-ring. I also flipped over the seal on the pin side of the L.P.R. The leak now is barely a whisper but I think once I replace the o-ring it will be gone. Schmitti, do you work in water treatment? Did you take engineering?

Moose... I'm a (thumps chest) Licensed Professional Civil Engineer in PA and NY. Currently I work for NYSDEC... but I have done work in water supply, land development and environmental remediation work.

I hope to put some air to the FUBO box tonight.

I took civil as well, never bothered with my ring though, ended up in structural design. Now your valve leaking out the base I would have to believe the o-ring must have a nick, or the outer casing of the L.P.R. could be deformed ever so slightly. Just an idea.

What would this "ring" be that you speak of.. Some type of Canadian secret society for engineers?

Need to look the lpr guts over again... everything looked clean... dry, but clean. I may add a little bit of teflon tape to the base for a better seal.

Most of the guys up here receive a ring upon receiving their engineering license, hence I do or don't have my ring (do or don't have my license)

Would this be like a "class ring" but for engineers?

Here we just get the paper license and our seal (whether it be a rubber stamp or embosser/krimper or both). Never heard of anyone in the US getting a ring. Must be something from England/Europe.
