rainmaker is leaking

My rainmaker is leaking out the hole that feeds the air from the body into the bolt. I assume this means the valve orings need replaced, but how do I get to them? the manual isn't much help in this situation.

I should add that that I only have access to a low pressure tank at the moment, but it's happened before when i've used a high pressure tank.
Also, where can i find a list of orings for this beast? I can't find anyplace with that information

I don't remember the o-ring size, but they are a standard -0xx size. Those rings don't move, so I would suspect the poppet face is dirty and leaking by. It comes out with the back block for the HPR. The top screw that goes across the back of the body holds that block in, through a notch. You'll have to take the two screws out of the LPR block underneath first.

Try cleaning the poppet and valve seat first. I still have a lower body with tap stuck in the valve retention screw hole. No amount of solvent or heat would let me get the set screw out. I drilled out the set screw just fine and got the valve body out, but whatever was left in there would not let the tap through, even after multiple attempts. It is my first target for a homemade EDM setup. Soooo, be careful with that.

You have to remove the block that is lower part of the hpr,not just the cover. Then you can get to the poppet and spring and be able to clean the valve seat.

This is the dirtiest marker i've ever taken apart. I'm fairly confident that it's never been cleaned. The delrin poppet is dyed pink/purple and the front parts(hammer, etc) were covered in some sort of brown sludge.

After taking it apart and cleaning it, it still leaks out the same place. Guess I either need a new cup seal or some valve orings.

edit:
so where would I go to find a cupseal for this?

Spyder cupseals are the same, just un-thread yours from the pin and thread the spyder seal on. Leaking from the cupseal is normal with a LP tank, it takes higher pressure to get it to seal. Even with a HP tank I usually have to shoot it once to make it seal, the hammer will hold the valve open until you cycle the marker.
