View Full Version : Halo B take down

01-28-2006, 11:28 PM
Im thinking about taking apart my halo B hopper to clean it (theres paint chips in the area with the wires and the bord and stuff and paint under the wheel.) its not effecting the performance or any thing but it would be nice to have it clean. Is there any thing I shoud be carefull with? any small parts to make sure not to lose? or should i just live with it dirty?

Screws, obvou.

Take out the screws, set them aside in a bowl or someplace they won't roll away... When all screws are removed, take off battery cover, take out battery pack, and pull shells apart... only part you need to worry about would be the lid spring and pivot... the spring should probably stay put, but you'll want to pull the pivot and put it with the screws just to make sure... Clean away... If think you need to use water to clean something, use isopropyl alcohol instead to avoid damaging electronics... When putting it back together, just remember to get the little piece of the spring in front of the lid, and make sure not to pinch wires... The REALLY small screws go next to the feedneck and to the battery cover, the slightly longer one goes in the front, and all the others are the same length and can go anywhere... Tighten securely, but don't overtighten. You don't want to break the hopper...

And one more thing. DON'T TAKE OFF THE DRIVE CONE. I did that with mine once, had to take it into the shop to get fixed.

You can take it off, but if you do..you have to reload the drive spring which isn't all that hard. I can get you a Halo B tutorial page if you like..

the tutorial page owns. it took me a sec to figure out what was going on, but once you know what you are doing its easy, cept i missed the hole with the lid pin and when i screwed it together it created a stress crack all the way down the shell, one hit and its gonna loose that piece.

Tutorials always make it sound harder then it really is. I know when I first got my Imp Dragon sent me all sorts of link for care, lubbing, settings and what not and I was just blow away, but you just need to slow down and read them carefully and they walk you through and its not that bad at all.
