I just modded my at2k but when i pump it air seems to be leaking out where the plastic goo holding part of the good gauge meets the orange part of the goo gauge. To fix this problem i first tried unscrewing the orange goo gauge part then when i put it back together the problem was still there. Then lining the area with hot glue where the leak was happing. But still no fixo. When i pump it i can fully hear the air leaking out and after about 7 seconds after if pump it there is no air left at all.
I know im kinda a Knewblet but this is about my 5th mod. Can any one help me out?

I'm going to go with Ompa on this. Use something like plumbers goop or epoxy that will give you an airtight seal. Hot glue does nothing to give an airtight seal. So, don't use it for trying to seal tubing or air tanks.

So your saying basicly just cover the whole air tank and orange thing with goop?

You could do what Ompa said but if you want to get rid of the goo tube entirely do this here and hopefully it will get rid of the problem.

No, don't just go in blindly and start gluing everything. I made this mistake once, and I'll never do it again. It ruined my Magstrike. Put soapy water over the general area of where you think the leak is, then pump up the gun. Wherever bubbles start forming is where your leak is at. Wash the thing off, and put Plumbers Goop over that area. Wait 24-48 hours and it should be good.

Before I do this I should remove all the old hot glue right? Also does this problem definetly sound like a bad goo tank and not a bad pump plug?
I just want to make sure before i go buy plumbers goop.
