Default It's a little wobbly

I don't know what this is called so bare with me. When I screw my air tank into my electra 08, the part where you screw it in is a little wobbly. I don't think that it's supposed to be that way. Once again sorry I don't know what that piece is called but does this happen with anyone else?

The piece is call the "Air Source Adapter" ASA for short. The mounting screws, that bolt it to the frame are loose. Take either an Allen wrench or Phillips head screw driver & tighten them up.

Remove the left grip. Move the battery and harness out of the way. At the bottom of the trigger frame where the battery was is a small hole. It has a set screw in it. Turn the set screw to the right(CW) w/an allen wrench untill the ASA doesn't wobble any more. If you want to make it even more secure you could use a very small dab of blue Loctite on the set screw then tighten it down. Don't get the Loctite in the hex well of the set screw or you'll never get a wrench in it again after the Loctite hardens. Hint: the set screw is in place on an angle not at 90* from the bottom surface -

cool!!! I see it, that's the first step, but it is really really hard to tighten or even get to it. my ASA is a little less wobbly, I guess i'll just keep at it and try to tighten the impossible screw some more. Thanks!!

Default Re: It's a little wobbly

so i tried to remove the electronics so that I could more easily get to the screw, and I got really scared because the electronics wouldn't come out. I unscrewed the two screws keeping the board in but apparently that wasn't enough. The ASA is still kind loose but thanks for helping

I'm scared because I put the battery back in to see if I messed up the board and to see if it still works, and the eye indicator is flashing. I don't know what that means. Im not firing with any paintballs, are my eyes broken? Oh and the ASA is 10% better although it's not perfect

Check the connections on the board. You most likely pulled the eye wires loose.
