Tippmann A5 refurbish

Just bought a tippmann A5 at a yardsale for $5. No grip, but it had a cyclone feed and flatline barrel. When I put the Tank in, it bled through the whole system out to the barrel. I took it apart and looked for the issue and didn't see anything. (Im definitely not a marker genius though). But everytime I shot, even when it was bleeding, it would not recock it self. Should I get a new bolt? or is there a significant spring missing. I couldnt find a good picture of the insides of an A5. thanks guys

5 bucks for an a5 + flatline? you could make a few bucks off that. but it sounds like your tank isn't full. and make sure its cocked before you put the tank on.

did it leak out, or did it go into rapid fire mode after you pulled the trigger?

But yea, it just leaked. Not rapid fire. And the tank was low so i think that was the issue. and it wasn't cocked. Im going to fill the tank now and get a hopper for it. thanks guys!
