When I shoot my AT2K, the black rubber piece comes off the rod in the air tank, how can it be fixed?

You've got to cut that shit open!

I've usually see it done on the seam of the airtank then gooped back together.

If you cut the stem about a 1/16 above the tank you should have access to the O-Ring.

Bonus: Improved airflow

I once did this with a SM1500 without cutting open the tank. It's tricky, but possible. I used silicon glue, but goop is pretty much the same thing, and I'm sure other heavy duty adhesives would work also.

If you're not having a problem getting the rubber gasket (rubber washer?) back on, just take off the gasket, put some goop on the rod and force the gasket back on. For me, it was very tricky getting the gasket back on, but it was possible. Then put a dallop more adhesive on top, but make sure it doesn't run down the sides. To ensure that you don't glue shut the valve, you need to find a way to hold it open. I just tied some dental floss to the firing pin and pulled the floss through a gap in a shelf and tied the floss off down below. You could do this inside the shell of the AT2K. Basically you just need to be creative enough to find a way to keep the valve open for however long it takes for the goop to dry. Just don't get over anxious and try to use the tank again before the goop has reached full strength (up to 72 hours for plumbers goop).

I hope that gave you some ideas.

DO NOT CUT IT OPEN!!! Trust me, thats a last resort... I've done this same fix about 4 times and I just used a paper clip to fish out the seal, then held it in place while I pushed it back on. Sometimes its a little frustrating, but I've done it in about 5 minutes... Try it at least before you do something you don't have to...

You probably got a little bit of super glue on the rubber piece and it's creating tiny little passages for air to leak out of. If you pump it up all the way, does it still leak? With this sort of thing, often enough pressure will force the rubber piece to seal all the way not letting any more air out. If that's the case, try putting a little mineral oil on the rubber piece and let it sit, pump it up all the way and see if that fixes the leak.

Thats exactly what I was thinking happened and I didn't test the leak with full pumps, only 2 pump so the pressure probably will fix the leak with full pumps
