one thing i completely forgot about: the front small oring on the bolt - doesnt like to be there, but it doesnt seem to have any negative effects.
Is that the thin o-ring on the black piece? or is it the thick o-ring on the silver piece? If it is the thin one then yea no problem, not much of an issue, if it is the thick one then yes it does serve a purpose and you need to have it there.

Just remember, if you ever want to replace your clippard/actuating valve, go through someone around here like joedirt instead of metadyne (straight form distributor/manufacturer for 10-20 w/ shipping as opposed to metadyne for like 40-50 w/o shipping - i.e. total rip off for what should otherwise be everyday cheap product).
Yeah i know. but thanks anyway!

I meant the piston, sorry. and no, not the thick one on the piston head but the frontal one of the two small orings on the shaft. The thing is, that it was getting shot out, from day one.

I always joked about posting mine up as a rare 1 of 1 Thumper, because it's always worked

Not at all, though I haven't had Brian contact me back with the new shop address yet. Time to send another email

Flint:

Here are a couple of pictures of what could be wrong.
The first one is the little brass piece. This one is a good one nothing wring with it.
The second picture is the aluminum sear (of sorts) this one works as well but it does have a groove in it. Measure your to this one.
The last picture is the side of the block. If it looks just like this with NO screw threw the side then your sear/hammer is the aluminum version, if there is a screw there then it is the new steel one. If it is the steel one then that is not your problem.
The first picture shows an older style pawl, which he would have if he did indeed have the aluminum hammer still (it sounds like he does)

The steel hammer also required that pawl to be modified, so it would show a bit differently.

And as to the person with the VASA problem, a thicker o-ring can help sometimes, but the tolerances are so finicky, I figured out mine preferred the standard o-ring to a thicker one.

The threads in the upper part of VA wont tighten.
Someone has an extra or the contact info to metadyne that work?

That would be LILshank that has the non issue Thumper. I have had 3 out of 10 that never gave me any problems and sold them and of now im down to owning just one and its has the steel screw on piston that i red loctighted andr un with buna (i think 80s) and so far its been good to go..The trigger sticking thing i have run across before and as i remember it was an off centered back plate or the trigger slide need a lil dow/oil since it is metal on metal..

Mine was a problem child... Until yesterday. adding an inline reg completely solved my problems. I didn't disable the internal reg like some with older gen guns have. Just that simple change rid the gun of its locking up when I air it up. I'm on cloud nine now. And using a very old Benchmark drop down side mount asa keeps the great balance when using a 68/45

And the reason I am obsessed with getting this going is because the Thumper has ruined me from using regular pump guns forever. The amazing thumb cocking is such a great design idea.

I'm glad to hear this! While I still love my nelson based guns, my sniper and sniper based guns and my new to me palmerized pg, the Thumper and it's unique action is really a blast to shoot. I mean, how else do I explain having three of them when all I really need is one

need has nothing to do with it I guess

Anyways, in terms of your new thumper's setup, do you use the internal reg for anything? Like do you use it to adjust or fine tune your velocity? Or do you use your internal reg for that? joedirt originally did what you're doing, but I think a couple months down the road of use it failed on him, so just something to keep an eye on (although with proper cleaning and lube and quality/proper orings hopefully this doesn't have to ever become a problem).

EDIT: 880 pages. Nice.

I'm just going to use the inline reg to keep input pressure low enough to keep the internal reg from locking up. I'm planning to use the velocity screw on the gun to set the velocity. I figured I would go that route until I have failure. If it doesn't fail down the road life is good. If it does fail though I still have the inline reg to keep it civil. :-)

Nice. What is your inline reg's output set at?
