Good Morning Everyone.
I have a 1998 VF-10 (serial# 16018) that keeps breaking the snap ring on top of the piston shaft. I just finished last week replacing the complete tool release piston assy., due to it had broken the piston shaft also. A brand new assy. and it has already broken the snap ring again. I have checked the pre-charge pressure, and it was set @ 18 PSI. I adjusted this down to 6 PSI, and was wondering if that could cause a snap ring failure. This machine has TSC, but is used rarely (twice a year). Can anyone give me an opinion or a fix?
Any help is greatly appreciated!
