No, i don't think that should. Although the thin rubber gasket on that particular piece (same side as the arrow) seems to be ripped. See the black "D" shape there? That's only part of the gasket.

I would guess your original problem had more to with the solenoid manifold, then the solenoid itself. I've seen it blow on a couple 07s... I hate to say it, but there were a few reasons the 07 PMR was widely regarded as the worst model year.

Ive got 2 of these ,one i bought new ,another i got for $50,soleniod gasket leeked on both,heres the fix i came up with,posted on PBN originally,dont know if you have Indian head gasket oversees,its similar to industrial rubber cement,I've shot quite a few cases without returning leeks
This gun shoot awesome when it does,wouldve helped if Proto put gauges on them,its really easy to overpressurize them,I actually increase my dwell before I raise pressure to crono!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have 2 07 PMRs,both have had frustrating leaks with the noid/body gasket using a stock and TechT bolt,this was my solution to the problem,Im not an airsmith but have modded/teched Cockers,Mags,Ion in the past.TRY AT YOUR OWN RISK!This solved the problem for me,interested in feedback
After replacing ALL orings on both bolts and noid gasket I first tried an RTV silicon gasket goo used for cars,it seemed to help bit a but still leeked,so i tried Indian head gasket goo which solved the problem!first i applied a thin layer with a small paintbrush to the body and the top of the gasket making sure not to coat the holes and used toothpicks to index the gasket holes,next I applied the the bottom of gasket and top of noid and pressed firlmly using the screws to index the gasket and tightened them down.I waited a day to air up then did a leakdown test with bubble solution.I've shot several cases of paint thru them and the problem seems to be fixed!if i need to removed it I can use a little alcohal.Any feedback would be helpful

BTW have an extra gasket,theyre hard to comeby but its yours if you want to pay shipping

or

my ghetto mod works well too

u need eletrical tape

1 layer around the noid (where the ports are). then poke holes for the ports..make sure they are not covered what so ever..

screw back on gun,, screw on vert asa and reg air up and see if it works..

takes trial and error but saves alot of money
