Hardline Disassembly?

How do I disassemble the hardline on my VSC phantom? I want to take everything down to it's parts and clean it.

I always just loosen the one end that hooks the the vert adapter. The collar arond the air line just loosens up and it will come apart.

It should not be neccessary to clean the hardline, I can't imagine it getting dirty inside.

Be aware that it is tricky to reinstall the hardline properly once you disassemble it. Getting the o-ring on & seated is rather difficult and then there is tightening up the screws so the hardline is sealed & the correct length.

It's just I remember last time I did this, the hardline was in the way and made putting everything back together way more time-consuming than it should've been.

The two fittings will thread opposite to each other (as they are facing one another) so I tighten them a little bit at a time alternating between the two. This leaves you with the hardline parallel to the gun's axis and seats it properly without being too tight.

If you remove the fittings from the vertical ASA and valve body, make sure you put the NPT side back in... I started to hand thread the hardline threading into the side of my gun once but stopped before I made a mess of things.
