Air problems on brothers 98.

Ok so when I blow into the asa i can hear the air coming out of the barrel. Is this a problem?
HS

Is it cocked?
You Wont See Me

Does it still work when you put the tank in it?
redneckdeerhunter

Yes, but I figured out the problem, the powertube is broken so I need to get a new one.
HS

That would definitely be a problem.

Not the problem! The powertube simply houses the valve. You can have the valve completely out of the PT and gas on and it wont leak! A cracked PT can cause lots of other problems though, none to do with leaking.

Try cocking and blowing into it. Make sure theres no hole in the ASA (some have one) that your hearing.

Yes there is a hole in the ASA, so that is whats doing it?

If theres one on the side of it (like a pin hole) yeah. A lot of ASAs have them to vent the air in the line when you unscrew.

well, i found that if you blow into your macro on a tippy, with the gun cock, you will hear a leak unless you blow hard enough to close the valve
kinda like when you don't have enough air
if it is hookeed up to macro, blow into the macro as hard as you can, and see if it leaks, then stops

^I've heard this as well.

The hole is probably a vent for unscrewing, as TH1 said.

I actually had the same problem. Every time I screwed the co2 tank into the gun I could hear a slow leak near the valve and barrel. I oiled the pin on my co2 tank and the problem was fixed.
