PAS and First Gen NF. My new primary and secondary for those of you who believe in that kind of thing. The PAS has a PVC coupler with a CPVC coupler nested inside, and the NF has a PVC nested 17/32 brass barrel.
BBB I did for a friend. CPVC coupler and filled dead space, nothing special here.
I did this at my local target, and ended up going through 5 of them before giving up. I think all new 4Bs have this problem.
Go return it and get another. Try it out in the parking lot of target to see if it works, return it if it doesn't, until you get a functioning big blast.
You are correct my friend. All new ones have this problem, but if you put ONE thin strip of e-tape under the o ring it will still move like intended in the design while being able to build pressure. I've done this to a few and they all work fine.
I tried this, but after a few rounds of pumps the E-tape seems to compress, once again rendering the O-ring useless.
I just did the water test. Turns out that it's leaking from all four of my connectors! So just how should I go about fixing these leaks, would epoxy work, I know they have that at my local ACE, but I don't know if they have silicone spray. To answer you question, I am using a plugged AT2K pump. Thanks in advance.
I encountered the same problem when I was working on an earlier project; the best way I've found to seal the tubing is to smear super glue (Loctite, that Krazy Glue brush-on stuff, or related adhesives) on the barbed connector and shove the tubing on top. It dries very quickly (a few minutes at most), it seals airtight, and if you cut the tubing right at the connector scissors will make short work of the glued-on tubing, which makes the process pretty reversible if you're not getting an airtight seal just by jamming the tubing on.
Do you thing this would work with hot glue? All I really seem to need is a very slight inlargement of tube size, and then it would be airtight. I think I may try this and see what happens, hot glue seems to be very easy to remove.
You could mod the longshot. Then you'll own.
I object. The good primaries have already been mentioned (BBB, LBB/BBBB, AT2K, etc.), but showing up with a longshot will get you outranged in no time. Unless you angel breech it, it will not be worth your time/money and from what I've heard, even an angel'd LS can be picky with stefans. Silentsnipe, you will not own with a LS (unless you are playing HvZ or you are the legendary messiah), trust me.
I agree with this, unless you decide to single it and smoosh it together with a titan like BlaskSunshine (as well as yours truely) did. Only then will you truly own. Oh, and if you do a RSCB clip mod to a BBBB then you will also own.
