View Full Version : More Ego Questions

03-18-2008, 08:00 AM
I have two more ego questions. The first is what do you lube and what do you oil? Second, I was programing the board and somehow I'm now stuck in some mode. I was in training, and now when I go to the programing mode all it's letting me do is edit the display (Peak ROF, Avg ROF, Timer etc.) and edit the timer, and exit/off. How do I exit this and enable all of the other options, like preset, filter, and all the others?

You use lube on the HPR and LPR and oil on the rammer and bolt.

Are you pushing the red button on the board inside the grip frame to access the programming screens?

What year is your Ego?

Oh wow, I forgot it's an 07. Thanks that solved both problems, it seemed I must have pressed the red button when installing the rf chip. I have two new questions however. In the manual it says how to remove the rammer. It says just unscrew the cap, and gently tap it and the rammer will fall out. I have given it a pretty hard tap and it's not budging. Also how much do I oil the rammer, and bolt? A thin film, similar to lubing?

Where is it sticking? Right at where the threads are for the rammer cap?

The rammer should come out there is no trick really. Try using the bolt pin to push it out from the top. It could just be that its dry and not sliding, try putting a drop or two of oil on a q-tip and applying it to the inside of the rammer housing, that might lube it enough to get it out.

As for how much oil should you use...

You don't need a lot on the bolt. Just enough for a light coating.

The rammer just a drop of oil on the o-rings should be good, just make sure its not dripping of the o-rings.

Thanks, when I used the pin to push it out, it came out and it was dry as a bone. Thanks for all your help

Here is a really easy way to get the rammer out, for future use:

Thanks, and I tried that method, but it wouldn't budge without any oil. On another note, is that a jute box in the background?
