Default Dynamite Fuel Gun

Does anyone have one of these? I do and it leaks! Won't screw onto the bottle cleanly, the tip leaks and won't stop dripping fuel. I am very disapponted.....any suggestions on fixing this one or a better/different gun?

I can call Horizon Monday but thought I might find some help here...

That's what you get for being so generous to the "motor fund". Should have saved those pennies...

Thanks guys - without you I would be lost!

Now back to the matter at hand - what fuel gun should I get so that I don't fill Mark's receiver this year (again) instead of his tank?

I've seen a few of the Dynamites work OK. But, if you're looking for a different one, RB makes a rather nice one.

Yes the RB one a friend has is nice. But it still leaks. I remember reading something about it and I wonder anyone could give tips how to stop the leaking?

I have a Kyosho fuel gun, and a mate has one of the RB guns.

They all leak a little. They both got a lot better after a few uses. I guess the orings just needed a little moisture to swell up a little and seal better. They still leak from the filler end as there is not a seal there other than the plunger. Its not a big drama unless you keep it full. I only put enough fuel in it for one or two refules. If more is needed my pit monkey can top the gun up from a bottle between stops.

If your fuel gun is leaking - check the "o" ring. Clean the gun after each days use - I put "TrFlow" on the oil rings - it swells them slightly and the "gun" doesn't leak. Be sure the gun is adjusted properly - the O ring should seat firmly in the barrel.

With The RB and other guns of that design - keeping them clean and the "o"rings mantained is critical. (If you haven't cleaned your fuel gun - take it apart look inside the "junk inside" will scare you)

This Dynamite gun has leaked since day one. It also doesn't fit around the neck of a fuel bottle in order to fill it as specified in the directinos that came with it.

Has anyone had these problems and called Horizon? I will try tomorrow to do that myself but this darn work thing keeps getting in the way! :-)

My experiences with the RB fuel gun:

It seems that it is normal for a little bit of leakage with dry o rings on the RB gun.

Have the RB and an old Odonnel gun. You don't know leakage until you try an older gun,the RB is excellent for 1/8,the Odonnel works better in 1/10,as it has a smaller and longer fill neck.
