Anyone ever serviced a Stanstead gas booster?

It allows gas to pass through as a decanting whip but once drive gas is connected it just leaks back out. It will not build up any pressure on the drive gas at all.

I contacted Cetek and got the manual and service kit.

Mike said that it is failed on the upstroke.

Has anyone ever serviced one?

I got the service kit in the post, it doesnt have the "service lube" that the manual mentions and that he mentioned in his emails.

I am waiting for a reply to find out if I can just use silicone grease. I had expected that the 50 quid service kit contained more than half a dozen o-rings in a bag and that it would have included the service lube too

Does it just whoosh when you switch on the drive air? If so it may be that the top O-ring needs to be regreased (silicone grease is fine as its the drive side). This video shows what to do. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j7uOUr1CIMg

With mine it was the large thin o ring (that looks loose when the top comes off) that was dry. Only that needed regreasing and the thing put back together. Alternatively remove the white shuttle and regrease that too,

Thanks Steve. I had actually tried that before I got the service kit. It didnt seem to work. I think I will need to work on it iver the weekend. I am trapped at home over the weekend as the Pope is visiting Dublin and we are within the traffic management area so I have a chance to play with it

When mine done as you described, the large white plastic shuttle in the top lid had a split in it. Mike sent me a replacement and all has been good ever since...
