    Default s410 leak

    i have bought an s410k but when filling there is a leak from the adaptor. i have tried to fix the problem with an extra o ring but this hasnt worked. its the old style adaptor. what im finding is that the adaptor doesnt screw all the way in to the end of the hose so the washer/o ring isnt making a seal. before i added the extra o ring the cylindeer wouldnt fill but with it it fills but still leaks

    any ideas on how to fix the problem?

    Can you provide a pic of the adapter and hose, if I remember correctly there is not suppose to be a o ring between the hose and adapter, there is a "dome" in the end of the hose it is this that should seal on the end of the adapter.

    Are You talking of the threads of the female adaptor Rhys???

    If so, and You are sure the dowty seals are OK, then it sounds like You need to remove a few threads off the length of the threads, to allow the internal cone to seat down snugly on the corresponding cone of the hose, and created an airtight seal.

    ill get a pic up later. i think its to do with the the threads being too long on the adaptor itself as it wont screw all the way into the hose.

    Yep, it is quite common, and I have had the same thing myself.

    Just make sure after filling or grinding a few threads off, that You blow all the swarf/fillings out of the adaptor before using/fitting it to the hose.

    If that is not done, the fillings will be introduced into both the filling and firing valves, causing major havoc and even more headaches.
