Motor Adjustment G36C 2Gx
Posted 21 April 2012 - 05:39 AM
I have looked through these forums (which are very informative btw) and read the manual cover to cover (all 18 or so pages). Since this was a fairly hefty purchase and I am totally in love with this gun I want to make sure through proper maintenance schedule and general TLC this gun lasts for as long as possible.
My original question...motor adjustment. I do not want to blow this thing out. Is there a video or audio resource that I can gauge what my motor sounds like vs what is optimal or near optimal?
Thank you ahead of time for any help!

- In too far - the motor will start to bind in the gear box and ultimately cause the GB to seize
- Out too far - and the pinion gear will grind over the bevel gear causing a very unpleasant grinding noise
- In between the sound of the gear box cycling should be a clean "pop" without and noticeable gear whine if the setting is correct
- Fire the gun and listen for a base line sound
- Turn the motor height adjustment until the sound changes, usually gear whine begins and the motor slows (one shot at a time and only a quarter turn of the screw at most)
- back the adjustment screw out a little bit with each subsequent shot until the cycle sounds a clean "pop, pop". Remember is you come out to far the gears will start to whine again. If this happens just turn the screw back in until the best sound is obtained. By best I mean "cleanest", "clearest"..."pop"
