Thanks. I tried degreasing with isopropyl alcohol, which didn't work, but I think I have a can of brake cleaner in the garage, I'll give it a try. I also tried using the piston with strong double back tape. I wondered what effect that spacer would have. If I can get it out I'll see if I pick up more speed without it, or if it quiets down a bit. I'm finding every little thing I do effects performance somehow, accuracy, speed, smoothness of the shot cycle. I'll report back when I have some results. Thanks again.

If the spacer is made of plastic, you may be able to get a long drill bit and drill a hole in the spacer. You can then find a long screw to screw into the spacer and pull it out. I once had an after market delrin spacer get stuck. I had some old springs, so I cut a chisel like slope on the end that was sharp enough to dig into the spacer. It worked, but only after a good bit of twisting and gouging with the spring.

FPoole, good idea. I'm going to try throughout degreasing it with break cleaner and see if I can get something to stick to it and pull it out. The spacer is delren I believe. If that doesn't work, the drill bit will be the next thing on the agenda. When I pushed the spacer into the piston, it felt like there was a rib on the shaft or the piston wall. I know I felt some brief resistance when the spacer was most of the way into the piston and thought if I ever have to get this out it's going to be tough. Haha.
