Slider trigger frame install for trilogy

I have some concerns maybe you all can help ease my brain
This ANS quickfire didnt fit quite right..it turned out the valve screw underneath the body was sticking out too much. I turned it in about 1/4-1/2 turn more to set it deeper.(not under extreme force) just torqued it more. Frame then was flush against body. Would that be ok or should i back it our and just file off extra material from screw head? Trigger slides fine and when i cock marker it releases upon pull.

2nd -reversing the low pressure hoses...is it that simple it seems i dont have a lot of slack to reverse the front to back and back to front.

Lastly - Has anyone used Duracoat before to change color of parts
DURACOAT FIREARM FINISHES DIRECT

here are some pics

You really ought to order some replacement 'cocker hose, cut fresh pieces.

Don't worry about the valve screw; if it's flush with the bottom you're fine, it can't go "too far" in.

I've definitely seen valves with wear on them from the valve screw, but it doesn't actually hurt anything.

There are some valves that have holes on the top and bottom, some which have holes on the top and closed dimples on the bottom, and some that are open all the way around... The valve screw (usually) serves two purposes - primarily it plugs the hole left by drilling the air passage from the valve chamber to the upper tube, and (in most, but not all cases) it keeps the valve in the proper position to direct airflow upward toward the air passage (the jam nut holds the valve in place).

In the future, it's always a good idea to replace your 3-way hose when you take it on and off more than once, especially if your pneumatics have large barbs which stretch out the ends. It's very cheap, your local proshop probably has it for $1/foot, which will do your front end twice over.

I ran into the same thing when I installed a slider frame on my Trilogy pump. Instead of wrenching it down tighter, I backed it out a bit and used the flat edge of a Dremel cutting wheel to grind it down a bit before screwing it back in. Now it sits flush without over tightening the screw and possibly jacking up the threads in the body.

Valves can leak when the set screw is torqued down too much; especially 11/16 valves that aren't held in with a jam nut. Have you aired it up since?

I know I had to take at least 1/16" off my Trilogys set screw to make it work with a slide frame.

I did end up taking it apart again to see how much it would take to file off. Glad i did because it was still touching the frame.

I've been there, brother. Luckily mine are older now. It gets better once they're out of diapers and formula. It gets better yet once they start school. You'll be back on the field again in no time.
