I'm pretty sure the cog/seat fits in a standard socket (wrench), which is nice when it's hot. That way you only have to worry about gripping the stem.

I&I has this

Looks like is has a new seal in there between the two larger o-rings. Not bad for $9 (plus shipping).

I might have to take a look at that parts kit.

I got it off and straightened it out, and when I aired it up the leak did get noticeably quieter, but it's still there. It's a very faint leak when cocked, and when I fire it doesn't recock, and leaks faster.

I adjusted the recock and velocity according to :

The settings I've got mine at are
Mainspring Tension: (the hex screw at the back of the marker above rear ASA) Unscrew it all the way and then screw it in two full turns.
Velocity: Screw it in all the way and then back it out 2-4 full turns.
Recock: Screw it in all the way then back it out 1/2 to 3/4 turns.

Hopefully that might help your recock problem. I recommend taking a look at the manual one of these days.

Any direction?

If you are firing it without paint (or reballs) in it, it might have a problem re-cocking.

I believe that advice I gave was assuming that the individual was shooting with paint. Having a paintball in the breech assists with recocking.

Try taking the barrel off the marker and dry firing it with your hand over the breech (where the barrel screws in). That should mimic having a paintball in the breech and it should recock that way.

Also, I should mention that I use a high pressure output reg with an expansion chamber or gutted reg with my Pumas. Make sure your output is above 700psi if you are using HPA. And you may need to provide some sort of reservoir to make sure you have enough volume of air to provide for the recock.

Also, seals usually need to be "broken in". If you have enough air, I'd try cycling the marker 50-100 times to assist in helping seat the seal and that might possibly shore up that leak.

If that doesn't do it, you might want to look into getting a rebuild kit from I&I or eBay. That rebuild kit should have a new seal for you.

I got the parts kit, but now the valve seal won't fit. It seems the inner ring is too small to fit around the screw, and the outer is too big to fit into the brass fitting...So, what to do? I flipped the old seal around for the mean time, but no air to test.

Any reccomendations to make the new seal fit?

you have a reg seat, not a valve seat. they are very similar in appearance. i have both. PM me if you need any new orings or seals. i have ICD specific orings and seals.

Well, I've finally replaced the seal, and it had an interesting effect. It stopped the leak although it seem almost like no air is flowing through the marker anymore. I toyed around with the velocity and recock screws, although they didn't have much effect either.

I tried with both CO2 and HPA, although only used the V ASA, not the one on the back.

Any advice for tuning these Alleycats?
