About the ICS Tappet Plate V2 Split
The ICS Tappet Plate V2 Split is a drop in replacement part for the tappet plate in an ICS Version 2 Split Gearbox. For the best fit and function in ICS guns, use ICS original parts which we have available through Action Sport Games.
About How Tappet Plates Work
The tappet plate is a component found inside your AEG gearbox and is responsible for moving the air seal nozzle back and forth during firing. This action feeds the BB from the magazine and loads the BB into the chamber and puts the nozzle into battery for firing the next shot. Though it is exceptionally rare to have to replace this part, it can wear out and fatigue. Polycarbonate components are designed for high impact but can still have give so they are not brittle. Outside of normal wear and tear, the only other way you could damage this component is by incorrectly closing the gearbox on an ICS gun, which we see many novice owners do.
When you initially pull the trigger on your AEG, here is what happens: the trigger slides the trigger shuttle to touch and make contact t with the electrical contacts inside the switch assembly. This completes the circuit and from your battery power is drawn and electricity flows through the switch down to the motor. The motor receives a current which makes the motor turn. The motor turns the bevel gear which turns the spur gear which turns the sector gear. The sector gear has two cams on it, one of which interacts with the tappet plate. During the revolution of the sector gear, a couple things are happening. It is interacting with the cut-off lever, tappet plate, and piston at the same time. The piston is being actively pulled back and released by this gear. The tappet plate is being moved back by the cam on this gear and allows a BB to be chambered into the hopup unit. Later in the revolution the tappet plate moves in such a way that the nozzle pushes the BB into said chamber and is in closed battery ready to fire. The gear, while still turning, will end up releasing the piston and the piston travels forward pushing air through the cylinder and in turn the air seal nozzle. Finally the nozzle shoots out air which sends the BB out the barrel.
Note: Fox does not warranty or accept returns for parts that have been installed/attempted to be installed.
Note: This part is overall intended as an OEM replacement for ICS version 2 split gearboxes. Fitment is guaranteed when used and installed properly. Due to varying manufacturer tolerances for gearbox internals, parts compatibility with other brands no matter what version might NOT fit even if it is supposedly correct and fitment is NOT guaranteed. The reality is that some parts may need fitting and some parts might look the same but the dimensions are slightly different enough to not work. This will require technical experience to identify to overcome.
