    After beating it like a rented mule yesterday, I blew the left side angle piston. Not sure what exactly happened because it just started leaking out the bottom. It doesn't look bent. It seems to be coming out of a hole on the bottom near the seal area. Is there a plug or set screw or something that could have gotten broken? I never noticed it before. Would be nice if I could repair it instead of replacing the whole piston. If I do end up replacing it, can I just use a standard piston from the parts store, or does Blizzard use anything different? It looks pretty standard, only it's huge. Thanks.
