Texan Power Wheel Loosens Up
« on: May 03, 2020, 11:00:31 AM »
A while ago I noticed my Texan’s Power Wheel loosens up in between shots. I wrote an email to AirForce Support asking about this and they sent me a pair of stainless steel set screws but they sent no instructions. So before I take my Texan apart does anyone know where these screws go and what I need to take apart to get to the place they are to be installed?

Well I looked at MrHollowPoint's video on taking apart a Texan to install a Hammer Spring, and I have an idea of what is going on. It's going to involve almost a complete tear down. I ain't sheered.

Sure would be nice if Airforce would provide a parts diagram at the very least.

"sheered"! I think that should be.... "SKeered". But then again, neither am I!

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.
