View Full Version : Remove Expansion Chamber from TL

09-06-2009, 06:40 PM
I'm trying to get my expansion chamber off and it's really hard. What I'm trying to is take it off so i can screw my tank straight in. i was wondering if the vertical adapter is like the Compact 2-in-1 where you can just switch out the hose with the tank. If it is I'll keep trying to take it off. But I couldn't get it of with a vice grip and vice. I was also wondering if there was lock tite on it or something also. I don't want to mutilate the expansion chamber cause I still want to use it if i ever have to play with co2 again. Thanks.

any chance of it being held on by two tiny allen head screws near the V/A? I know on my TL-R it isnt a screw in V/A

I have the OLD TL like it's not a even a TL-Plus but I'm using the diagram I found online for TL-Plus because they're pretty much identical. The only small allen screws were for that shroud thing on the top where the barrel screw into the body.


I found this one on ebay, it looks the same, but I'm just not sure.

it should screw right off. maybe someone monkey f*&ked it on and now you need to get the cursing out of the way and remember its lefty loosey. have some coco rum and juice like me and get r done. good luck.

get a strap wrench. or try putting some wd-40 or luquid wrench by the threads.

Sorry guys I give up on this one. It's not coming even with wd-40. i don't know what else to do, i even strap clamped it. i'm out of ideas :confused: I did just screw the bottom asa into the ex.chamber and that was fine except for a huge leak. Then i when i went to unscrew the tank the asa unscrew instead the tank...resulting in extreme loss of co2, a freezing asa and a blown up ex.chamber :cool: So i think im just gonna get a va from a compact or something and one where i can still keep my volumizer.
