Recently acquired a leaky Splitfire. After taking it apart I found the leak, shitty dremel work caused a hole on the front of the left tank. Easy fix, right? Correct, but after maybe a couple days of dry firing to make sure no other leaks were present I noticed the infamous hiss. The right tank wasn't holding air due to the piston not sealing. Usual fix with back pressures is to flush the system with water to be sure there is no debris and pump fast. Worked for a short while but then clearing the water out (dry firing a shit ton of mist, this is KY so you're never firing dry) it stopped sealing again. The system is dry and clear of water now and it still will not seal properly and with the nature of Splitfire internals there isn't much to be done.
Tl;Dr right Splitfire tank piston isn't sealing and the usual methods aren't proving fruitful in the long run. Any other ideas? Did I miss anything? This is a backpressure tank so the normal methods should work but are difficult to execute well.
I even consulted the highest of the elder council of the numerous forests.
Because pictures make anything better.

I would much perfer a game that's free of KY. I like it rough. Right, Vacc?
