performance tune-palmers. O ring/valve leak question.

Hi, I recently picked up a pmi lb that has a palmers performance tune...

Marker has a leak from the valve which I need to take care of. I need to pick up a O ring/valve kit.

Before I do I have 3 questions.

1. Does the performance tune make it necessary to buy a different o ring kit or will a "standard" Sheridan kit like Mad, Mad customs (and of course palmers) offer do the trick?

2. Does cartridge valve, non cartridge valve apply here? Which would I need?

3. will I need a valve tool.

thanks for the info.

This repair kit if your marker has a back bottle asa.
Non-cartridge valve
Valve tool - yes
MaD probably has a compatible seal kit also

All CA guns are old style valves. Yes, you'll need a valve tool. If it's performance tuned, it probably has a modified valve in it. Either way you need to get it apart and take a look. Not that many seals in a CA gun. Just the valve stem and valve guide o-ring.
