    Sounds like you didn't vent all the pressure out of the hose?

    That's what I thought so I tried it a few times on different cylinders with the same result:confused:

    I should add that I removed the hose first so the probe alone made the sound on removal :confused:

    Same applies. After you've bled the air from the fill line and tightened up the bleed screw, the air leaking from the fill valve of the cylinder immediately pressurizes the fill line again, which gives the same symptoms of the link i've posted ;)
