Default Problem

Well I thought I was done working on my LP Tl+ when I noticed that my pressure seems to be climbing higher with each passing game. It use to be set at 350 psi @290fps and now it's 500psi @280fps. The only thing I changed was adding the DH striker, which I thought would help me lower my psi. Is it possible that the Regulator (BL Torp) needs to be rebuilt?? or could there be another reason for the pressure climbing?

Humm do the usual clean and check....

If so DH strikers are alot lighter meaning you will def need a lighter Valve spring... so your best bet is to buy a spring kit and change them around....

From what you wrote I guess you aren't adjusting the regulator. Is it possible the guage is bad? Don't seem right you would gain psi but lose velocity.

I did catch my bl torpedo not regulate one time. I turned on the tank and the guage went right past 460 "where it should stop" and on up to 600+ "guage stops at 600".

... the gauge could be bad ... but i doubt it ... spring kit would be a possible solution .. and probably the best one for several reasons ...

most likely it's what chubbs said .. the lighter striker with the heavy valve ... and the light main .. won't let as much air in ... thus making you have to increase PSI's ...

Remember to clean and polish your gun though ... (internals)

OK to make it easy I post my current set up.
Spyder TL +
32* Spring Kit (Light Valve/Med. Main) <--- I think....
Spudnukl Bolt
DH Striker
NDZ HP Valve
Bob Long Torp
Macro Line

The Gauge is only a few months old, so I do ont know if that is what is causing the problem, however it could be. I know that last week I retested the spring combos and had a lower psi than I am acheiving now. Im thinking that I need to rebuild the torp, so what besides DOW33 can be used to lube the regulator?
