Ego LV1.6: Maintenance

Warning: Skipping this maintenance will cause your gun to break down and get you lit up like a Christmas tree.

Be sure to reference the manual, when needed. Unless otherwise stated, all o-rings are NBR70

Overview:
Best Lubes for your LV1.6:
  • Planet eclipse gun oil is recommended for the bolt and rammer only. Do not apply eclipse grease to these areas as they will cause poor performance

  • Planet eclipse grease is recommended for the LPR, SL4/HPR & solenoid only

Before Playing:
  • Clean your barrel & wipe down the outside of your marker

  • Attach your barrel blocking device

  • Remove the bolt, wipe it down, inspect the o-rings for damage and replace if needed. Apply a drop of Eclipse gun oil to each of the o-rings

    • Bolt o-rings: 14x2 (x2)

  • Install a fresh battery

  • Attach your air tank & engage your Push on Purge System (POPS) 

  • Power on your marker & chrono if needed

Between Games:
  • Clean your barrel using a clean swab or rag

  • Wipe down the outside of your marker. Do not use household cleaners or rinse off marker with water

  • Clean your barrel & wipe down the outside of your marker

  • Bolt: Remove the bolt, inspect the o-rings for damage, and replace if needed. Apply a drop of Eclipse gun oil to each of the o-rings

    • Bolt o-rings: 14x2 (x2)

After 1-2 Cases of Paint (2k-4k):
After 2-4 Cases of Paint (4k-8k):
  • Repeat the items above

  • Rammer: With the bolt out, remove the ram cap using a 3/16" hex key and pop out the rammer. Wipe it down & inspect the o-rings for damage & replace if needed. Apply a small amount of Eclipse gun oil to each of the o-rings before reinstalling. Note: Use a hex key from the bolt pin entry point to push out the rammer if needed

    • Rammer Shaft - Front: 010

    • Rammer Shaft - Bumper: 010

    • Rear Shaft - Middle: 011

    • Rammer Shaft - Rear: 010

LV1.6: Bolt & Rammer Maintenance:
  • Repeat the items above

  • SL4 Inline Reg:

  • Removal: Reference the diagram, video, & steps below as needed

    • Remove the SL4 Inline regulator by first unscrewing the AT pipe then removing it from the reg body.

    • Remove the bottom portion of the grip cover & unscrew the bottom cap, which should also allow you to pull off the swivel

    • Next, pull down firmly on the bottom portion of the grip to remove it, which will also require a squeeze halfway down to get it past the reg

    • Before unscrewing the reg, wipe it down to help gripping it, then unscrew from the body

    • Using a 1/8 inch hex key, turn the adjuster all the way in (clockwise) & push down once passed the threads, which will remove the guts of the reg

    • separate the adjuster top and bottom, then wipe everything down to remove any old grease

    • Next, visually inspect the internal o-ring located inside the adjuster top & replace if needed. If you're unsure, save yourself some time & replace this o-ring. Tip: If you'd rather inspect it first, use your phone's camera to take a pic of the o-ring & zoom in to check it out. I'd recommend being in a lighted area and turning the flash on. This might take a few tries.

    • Inspect the remaining o-rings & replace as needed. My recommendation would be to replace them all.

    • Additionally, you can remove & flip your reg seal over to the fresh side if you haven't done it previously.

    • Be sure to use a small amount of Eclipse grease when lubing o-rings before re-assembling

    • All o-rings NBR70 unless otherwise stated

      • Piston o-ring:  14x2

      • Adjuster Top (external): 011

LV1.6 - SL4 Maintenance
After 20 Cases of Paint (2 Months):
  • Repeat the items above.

  • LPR & Exhaust Valve: In order to rebuild your LPR, follow the steps listed below and check out the video.

    • Start by removing the SL4 Inline regulator and maintain it (as mentioned above)

    • While gripping the Valve Plug & LPR Cap, remove the tuning fork located in the area where you removed the inline regulator

    • You can now remove the Valve Plug & LPR body

    • Tipping the marker forward should allow you to remove the exhaust valve (and spring) as well as the LPR spring

    • If the LPR Piston didn't fall out with the LPR body, gently remove it with a pair of needle nose pliers 

    • Inspect the Exhaust Valve for damage/wear  & replace as needed

    • Disassemble the LPR body & inspect the reg seal for damage

    • Wipe down all components & inspect the o-rings for damage. My recommendation would be to replace them all
