Does anyone know what pressure the cyclone on an A5 will stop feeding?

I pulled mine apart the other day to replace the ratchet with a new aluminium one. Took it out back with maybe 500psi or so left in my HPA tank from winter wars, and put a few rounds through it to make sure all was working, but the cyclone wouldn't cycle, had to click it through manually. Too low of a pressure, or has something gone bibbledy with my marker?

That does seem to low. I can bring a tank by if you want. You can also add a light grease to help.

I had problem after problem with my cyclone trying to upgrade it from stock. I have spare parts for mine and Norm has some stuff in the shop if it comes to worse case scenario. I eventually broke down and bought the Techt Kit for $100 and it has been worth it with air pressure alone. I got down to 100 psi and the cyclone was still rotating. I have the HE handgrip and with it on fully auto I have not broke a ball or skipped one yet, and I have put over 1000 rnds through it playing around.

That being said what brand was the ratchet? I have read a bunch of reviews and some are cheaply made and just do not work that well. It also could be when you hammered the pin in did it bend a little??

A stock cyclone "states anyways" 400 psi. -- Mine never did, I usually had quite a bit of air left in it.

Bah. Hooked up a full tank and fired off some shots with the hopper off. Cyclone doesn't even move.

Bring the thing over this weekend and I will take a look if you want.

Did you reset your RT after you switched out the parts?

yup. it took about an hour and then our friend mentioned that the o-ring didn't look right on the piston. The factory put the ring on backwards. It shots fine now.
