Hey guys, I just need to know weather the o ring on the cylinder head can be replaced? It cant do anything but help, and if it can, what is the size? Thanks. Oh yeah, it is a V3 gearbox.

Why do you need to replace the o-ring? Are you not getting a proper air seal in the cylinder?

As long as the o-ring is not damaged beyond repair, you should be able to *carefully* stretch it a bit to get a better seal against the cylinder wall. I can't stress the CAREFUL enough as they will snap if you stretch too much.

If you do need to replace it, then any AEG piston o-ring will fit as they are universal. I don't know a specific size that corresponds with it.

He mentioned cylinder head o-ring, not piston head. However, to that point, AEG pistonhead o-rings are NOT universal. I commonly see improperly-sized o-rings used in stock AEGs, mainly from companies with historically subpar internals.

Now, back to the cylinderhead.....why would you need to replace it? (Unless it got damaged somehow?) Lube it up and press it in.

DOH! My mistake. That's what I get for reading quickly.
