    The A valve may be sticking

    Rust inside the cylinder ripping your seal. Same thing happened to mine

    I honed the cylinder the 2nd time

    I had the same problem some years ago, replace lift ram if it has rust on it and replace the washer seal that it goes into. As far as it not going up maybe some ice is in the reservoire.other than that the o rings and a valve should be checked:gunsfiring::gunsfiring::gunsfiring:
    good luck
