Pro-Lite Valve Dissa..

Anyone here know how to disassemble the tippmann pro-lite valve?
A exploded diagram would be bonus,if anyone has one.

I believe everything is held in place at the front of the valve using a c-clip. Use two small dental picks or punches to take the tension off of the clip and everything comes out. Use a pair of soft-grip pliers to stack everything back in when you are done.

tippmannparts.com I think, has the diagram. Tippmann used to on their website, try e-mailing them.

To the best of my knowledge, the Pro-Lite valve is a sealed unit - there is no way to disassemble it without rendering it un-re-assemblable (read: take it apart and you won't be able to get it back together in a functional form).

I am NO expert, but Venge I am assuming you're trying to rebuild one of the Pro-Lites you got from me. The guy I bought them from told me that they used to rebuild the valves and gave me one that was taken apart so that I could see what was in the inside.

With that said, I again stress that I am NO expert and Wycke could be correct. If you want I can get you a picture of the one that is in pieces. PM with an email address.

The pro-lite valve is very simple. It can be taken apart in the same manner as all tippmann valves. You just need to remove the C -Clip. You can do this with dental picks or with a pair of C-Clip pliers (get the one with multiple tips, usualy sold at automotive stores) The valve consists of 2 cup seal assemblys (these dont come apart any further) A brass rear cup face and oring, and a spring. Pro lite rebuild kits should have the orings in them last I checked. If by some chance your valve doesnt have a C-Clip, then it has a spiral clip as found in the 68 carbine and Pro Carbine, this also uses denatal picks to remove. Ill take some valve apart and photograph them for you.

The ones from the bunch that I looked at have the spiral clip.

Here ya go. In this case the pro lite had the spiral clip. The pro am is held together by two pins. A yellow inline wire crimp connector is also usfull in the dissaembly of the valve (to hold the face down while removing the C-clip) They are a pain to take apart but it can be done.

yep, the spiral clip ring on the ones I have worked on too. it has a lip on the beginning of the clip. get under the edge with a pointed inturment and get it started and work your way around. the can break so be careful. After that everything just falls out.
why the rebuild?
