    Hi at quarry this weekend when my quick fill cylinder developed a leak from the nipple end of the air arms adapter so is it just a case of emptying the cylinder and unscrewing the air arms adapter and replacing it?
    Thanks Gordon :eek:

    Pretty much Gordon, make sure its' the quickfill & not the bonded washer thats leaking though.

    The best thing is to replace them both.

    Thanks Pete, thought I should ask as cylinders and compressed air scares the hell out of me lol :eek:
    I filled it last night and popped it under water and air bubbles were coming out the nipple end.
    As you have advised I will replace both the valve and the bonded washer
    Thanks again Pete :)
