Autococker troubleshooting

I have a Pre-2k cocker that has a slight issue i havn't been able to resolve. My cocker isn't cycling quite right. I have a Dye swingframe on it and what is happening is that its not recocking very well. The trigger sort of sticks unless i use a really heavy return spring. I tried putting my compressed air on it to see if it had to do with regulation and that didn't help. I am using a Dye 3 way at a 2002 STO LPR and all STO internals. I've replaced all the springs and that didn't really work. I've tried oiling the 3-way to see if that is the problem and that didn't do anything. Anyone have any grand insight? i am at a loss. now it DOES work with a heavy spring but not with the much lighter stock spring.

Have you tried lowering the LPR pressure? Also, make sure that the frame is free of any debris and is well lubricated.

Yeah, this sounds like the LPR needs to be adjusted down. Get it to right where it can recock the marker, then turn it up like another 3/4 turn.

I thought the newer LPR's were self adjusting but i'll try it when i get home from work. And the frame is free from all obstruction its clean as a whistle

Is it rubbing against the body?

Just a thought. Use some vasoline or Dow 55 on top of your sear.

Isn't the hose configuration different on a swing trigger as opposed to a slide trigger?
Could this be your problem?
Other than that, I would be looking at the LPR adjustment as well

The fact that your can get it to work with a heavier spring seems to indicate that the LPR pressure is too high. Does it have an external aduster (knob or set screw)?

It doesn't hurt to oil/grease the sear, although I believe that too much oil/grease might cause the hammer to slip off of the sear occasionally. Not likely, but it is possible.

Tonight i tried for a minute to get it to work by turning down the LPR and it didn't do a thing but it was leaking down the barrel.(i.e.It was still not returning well. Then i realized that i had my vert reg on it for the first time in ages so that is probably down too low causing the leaking. i'll try it again tomorrow and let you all know.

Leaking down the barrel can be caused by the hammer not being cocked (try manually cocking it before gassing it up). Or, the cupseal is damaged. Or, the pressure is too low, as is probably the case.

When I am adjusting the LPR, I just keep pulling the trigger just until it is recocking and firing consistently every shot, and then I turn it up another 1/2 - 3/4 turn.
