    Valve leaking help

    Bought an old RT valve for a frankenmag. It was leaking out the back. I replaced every "O" ring. Now it is leaking out of where the grey part screws to the silver part in a big way. Please help. Thanks.

    Is the large o-ring between the valve halves intact, clean and oiled?

    Are you sure the leak isn't from the over pressure release hole in the side?

    There is probably a piece of dirt or a nick on the big oring that seals between the two valve halves.

    A leak out the back is usually a bad regulator seat oring.
    Except for the Automag in front, its usually the man behind the equipment that counts.
