Default Re: (fixed) Max-d 3000

I just fixed an arctic shock. Like on mine, the spring broke, but the plastic posts stayed intact. I gave it back to my neighbor, who also is letting me fix a flash flood. It has a hole in the tank. I will be keeping it. How do I fix the hole. It is a 1 cm diameter hole with a long gash.

Make sure the pressure chamber isn't upside down...if the outlet's on top when you fire, only air will come out.

Is the hole in the reservoir or the pressure chamber? Duct tape or epoxied plastic will work well for a reservoir, but fixing a pressure chamber is more difficult.

The arctic shock is dead. The hole is in the water tank of the flash flood.

If there's a hole in the reservoir (on the Flash Flood, the lower tank), just patch it with whatever. Even duct tape should hold for the duration of most battles. For more durability, glue a piece of scrap plastic over.
