Exclamation Fix a venting solenoid

Some BKO owners, around here, have had a problem with their solenoid leaking. Most of the time, they just turn down their LPR and the leak stops, but in return they get a very low velocity or their gun doesnt fire at all.

Most of the time, the solenoid screws come loose and you need to apply blue locktite to the screws and tighten them down.

Its a very simple fix, but some people are nervous about taking their gun apart. DONT BE!

This is a guide to help you guys out...

Tools
Standard allen keys
-7/64 Tray Screws
-1/8 Ram Screws
-5/32 ASA Screws
Screw Driver(Bottom Line screws)
Blue Locktite
Pointed Knife

Lube
Dow33
Dow55
White Lithium

I recommend Dow33.

Tools

1) Remove your bottomline asa and drop with a screwdriver or the appropriate allen key.

2) Remove HPR.

3) Turn the gun upside down and locate the 4 tray screws. Once located, remove the screws with a 7/64 allen wrench.

4) Set the screws off to the side and remove the tray. Be careful not to pull out the solenoid wires.

5) Check to see if the solenoid is loose. You can do this by gently trying to wiggle the solenoid.

6) Locate the two small solenoid screws. The two blurry black dots on the solenoid.

7) Using a sharp knife or small screw driver, remove the solenoid screws.

8) Now that the solenoid is removed, mind how the gasket is placed on the solenoid. The holes should be matched up when you reattach the solenoid.

9) Set the solenoid and frame off to the side.

10) I find that if you apply the drops of locktite into the holes instead of the screws, it works out better. Make sure you are putting the locktite in the screw holes and not the manifold holes.

11) Get a small allen wretch and make sure that you get some locktite down in the holes.
Checking Locktite

12) Wipe up the extra locktite. You dont want that getting into your ram.

13) Your manifold area should look something like this.
Locktite applied and wiped up

14) Before reattaching the solenoid to the ram, line up the gasket with the solenoid so that the holes are matching up. Then slide the 2 solenoid screws through the solenoid and gasket.

15) Now, screw the 2 solenoid screws down. Make sure they are tight, but not overly tight.

16) Gently try to wiggle the solenoid. Make sure it isnt loose.

17) Reassemble your gun in the reverse order that you took it apart.

18) Let locktite dry over night.

Hope this helps you guys out.

excellent, ImpYa. Gomster, I don't see you coming up with much sticky-worthy material (although that 15 degree comment was pretty classic). Naw jk, thats getting kinda old. Just kiss and make up.

Well anyway, a word to Bushmaster and BKO owners: don't be afraid to take apart your gun. You'll be fine as long as you keep track of where each screw came from, and don't lose too many parts. It's not that hard, and it's well worth it to be able to know how it works and how to fix it if something breaks later. Way better than paying $40 an hour to get it fixed by someone else. Just make sure you have a 7/64 allen key, they are kind of a weird size and not very common.

unfortunately Impya doesnt post much, if at all, anymore. I believe school and family issues caused him to get out of paintball, but i'm not totally sure. so chances of getting the pics back are pretty much zero

dont worry about it though, the written instructions are very good and its not very hard, the pics arent an absolute must. it may seem intimidating but just dive into it and you'll see it's pretty self-explanatory. The first time I removed my solenoid I did it with no walk-through and very little technical knowledge of my gun, it basically just involves removing a few screws and then putting them back in. the only thing you could do to mess it up is break the wires, which wont happen as long as you're careful and dont yank on them.
