I found a perfect spring at my local hobby store a number of years ago. It worked so well that I got an extra or two. Haven't needed them yet though. Worked great this weekend too.

There are inexpensive solenoids? Where? I may have just blown mine. Or perhaps I can just get a new spool?

Thanks!

Impulse leaking at the solenoid

I have a recently rebuilt Impulse that does not have a tape worm. I gassed it up, to about 150 psi, and found a leak. I solved it. Rinse, lather, repeat. Finally no leaks. I cannot remember if I...

Interesting.

I wonder if my habit to clean and lube my marker before putting it away has had an effect on this. Even my o-rings seem fine. Mind you my magic fingers see no lube so that makes no...

So common 12oz bottles won't fit? Unfortunately both of my old 9oz bottles are missing the TC stamp so they are prohibited by newish Canadian law.

I understand. Perhaps the port being larger than 3/16" for me meant that going larger than 3/16" on the valve port gave you that extra flow. It wasn't a tiny difference and given that the area of a...

Which transfer port? If it is the upper one then you have to remove a grub screw in the top of the marker. You will need to tap the new hole and put in a new grub screw if you do this.

I've always suspected as much as well. However I suggest that if you are removing the ASA that you should do both. I think that I read, way back when, that later VM's had a larger transport port.
