    New Cocker Owner Questions. Got any?

    One thing I have noticed about my tech articles is that I take a lot of basic cocker know how for granted. I have been trying to write a "Beginners Guide" to cockers, but I can't seem to settle on what should be in it.
    So, if you can do me a favor, and list the first questions you had when you first shot or owned a cocker, that would help a lot.
    www.moodypb.com, not taking any work, but the articles are still there.

    One thing I get asked a lot is how things work, such as the pnumatics. A lot of people aren't sure on the airflow.

    What should be done for maintainance?
    How hard to time?
    If I change the bolt (or LPR, or RAM, or 3 Way), what else needs to be adjusted?
    How can I easily remove the cocker hose?
    How does the noid function?

    Thanks,
    Jim

    The first question I had was if the bolt was the only thing in the top tube. I had only been around inline blowbacks at the time.

    I just bought a Karnivor and it has been a mess. I would go over double feeding and velocity adjustments for beginners. Newer manuals tell you to change the velocity with the inline reg, but they don't tell how to drastically change the speed within the marker.

    you need to say what brand of 3 way and type of frame you have (slider or swing frame).
    no matter what, the one from the lpr goes on the center 3way barb. if you get the other 2 backwards it will cycle backwards holding the block open until you pull the trigger, and then it will close the block. If your 3 way is way out of time something very siumlar can happen too.
    that should give you enough to work on, and once you give the 2 pieces of info I mentioned van will give you exact instructions..
    good luck,

    I would say basic beginners cocker 101 should cover

    Basic Timing Techniques
    Troubleshooting : Paint Chopping
    Troubleshooting : Blowback
    Reg adjustment
    Velocity lug adjustment.
    And a very basic overview about what all the parts are and what they do.
