Autococker Pneumatic help

Hey guys!

I have stepped into the world of autocockers. I bought 2 for pretty cheap, both 2k2's. One im making a pump, the other i wanna change some stuff around on. I have a few questions.

1) I have a bunch of pneumatics from both that i stripped down. What would be a ballpark estimate on value for them? 2 of each: lpr's, three ways, rams, banjo bolts and front blocks.

2) whats a preferred setup for the pneumatics?

3) whats parts do i need to have a quick disconnect for my lpr?

Thanks,
Eddie

1) depends what they are. stock stuff leaking could be 10-15 each, high end after market 40-90 each

2) personally i love the inception pneumatics. easy to rebuild if necessary, still being made, customer service is awesome.

3)what do you mean quick disconnect for your lpr. your lpr should remain on the front block.

1) depends on what they are
2) working
3) not sure why you would want this but between all the fittings you would need you would probably need to have your lpr sticking out an additional 6 inches forward from where it currently is. And that's assuming all of the fittings you need are actually made, I'm not sure of the threading on the lpr and front block

Itís standard 1/8npt. So it would only be about 2 inches longer. Still not necessary though.

Instead of removing the LPR barb everytime you would service the lPR i read there was a quick disconnect that was threaded for pneumatics.

But to be fair i dont know if LPR's need servicing to the point where a qd would be necessary, and i dont see a lot of cockers with them.

I assume you mean, [I don't see a lot with a quick disconnect], and not [I don't see a lot with a low pressure regulator], as they all have a font block low pressure regulator.

Just to make sure we're also talking about the same thing when referencing "lpr" meaning the front block low pressure regulator [see illustration].

Overall, no you don't need to service them frequently, but you may need to remove it to get your 3-way off as the barbs won't clear it as you remove it from the block. Luckily you shouldn't have to do that frequently either as the o-rings on the 3-way are on the shaft and can typically be removed while leaving the body on the block.

EDIT: I'm silly for not reading all of your posts, you even mention the LPR barb, so that makes it clear. My bad.

O you are looking for the output side.

Not that I have heard of but it's not like I'm looking either. Barb is easy to remove, just use a socket or docs little wrench designed for the task

You're good! Thank you for the clarification about servicing. The only other question i have really is the value of the pneumatics I have right now. Both are stock sets from WGP 2k2's, and both were taken from working markers.

I have a Quick Disconect on my LPR... It’s an ANS Jack Hammer 2 from an original SP Impulse Tapeworm/LPR kit. I left the quick disconnect swivel elbow that it came with on there when I put it on my 99’ Minicocker because the ANS Jack Hammer 2 is rebuildable without having to unscrew the NPT fitting from the front block. So, in the event that I ever need to rebuild the reg, I can disassemble and remove it easily without having to break fittings or deal with disconnecting/connecting the hose and barb.
