Piston broke, cut of lever (semi) spring, and Rate of fire problems
Posted 09 May 2013 - 08:32 AM
However, the rate of fire was insane. I've been using the same intellect 9.6v 3800 mah battery, but the spike was at least 5rps. It destroyed a tooth on the piston, but the piston was still able to be used (i already ordered a new one before this luckily). The cylinder sorbo pad even came off... So can anyone tell me why there was such a large RoF spike, because that's obviously what blew the piston

This little nub i noticed fell off the gearbox when reassembling, i put the air nozzle there as a size reference.
I am just baffled as to why my rate of fire increased so much, and how the piston was able to get a tooth stripped off.

The increased rof could be from a number of things but I would first check to make sure you don't have a pinched or stripped wiring anywhere.
The increased rof would certainly explain the stripped tooth on the piston which is pre- engagement where the piston due to its weight can't keep up with the cyclic rate of the gears.

It seems the Rate of Fire is normal, I guess over time the Rate of Fire dimmed due to dirty motor contacts. I was used to it firing slower so I guess I just forgot what it used to fire!
The piston a tooth in the middle chipped off, however it will still work in the meantime for testing purposes. I assume it broke because I just checked compression, and the vacuum created due to me blocking the air nozzle with my finger to simulate a BB added enough stress on the piston for it to break on the pull. Maybe, I could be completely wrong. I bought a ported piston head and now there is no more issues at all!
The cut off lever however, I need to buy a new one. Semi still works sometimes (I guess when the cut off vibrates itself back into place).
Also, what specifically would I need to order to replace the cut off lever spring? I see the selector plate and trigger assembly but do not see the screw i need.

Bingo! I just called (8:28 EST here, just made my call in on time) Unfortunately, the rep on the phone said those two parts are currently out of stock. He was extremely polite, and said to check back early next week. I'm very surprised that out of all the parts in my gun, the cut off lever decided to go. I've been searching frantically for the spring but it seems to be gone.
