Pro Carbine valve o-ring seat?

I just finished rebuilding an old rental pro carb and I am not sure of the proper method to seat the small valve oring off the bottom line. When I put it on the threaded fitting first it seems to stress when tightening. Or do I put it in the hole against the valve and then tighten the fitting? The schematics are not much help. Thanks!

Put it in the valve and tighten. They do take a lot of stress, they usually have to be replaced any time it then apart. Though I have seen some pretty rough looking spring work, and ive even seen guns seal without them. Also, any small oring that fits in there seems to work.

Did you get the powertube seated, then? Sorry I haven't returned your pm, been meaning to.

Thanks Chappy. Thats what I did. Don't have any air to test but I will bring it to TG tomorrow . Yes I gt the power tube seated with a little lube and a LARGE allen wrench used to gravity tap it down. All I need now is a safety. Well not NEED, lol. Seeing all these brittle plastic safeties makes the method on the vm68 seem very ingenious. Thanks forthe parts and advice.
