Default Yugo SKS Heartburn

I have a Yugo SKS that fails to function.

I have:

totally disassembled it and scrubbed thoroughly with Simple Green
replaced the gas valve with a new one from Gunparts Corp
replaced the two gas pistons with new ones from Tapco.

I best I'll get a stove pipe and at worst the gun will fire and the bolt will not cycle.

And yes, the selector is off the grenade position and onto the semi auto mode.

Any solutions before I put the thing in the back of my gun safe-way in the back?

You could always save space in your safe and give it to me...

put some clear nail polish around the front of the gas tube and it functions-stopped by an auto parts store and got some silicone gasket material-will do a permanent fix.

Are you using lacquered ammo? Try Wolf black box.

I've tried everything from Cor Bon DPX to Wolf-it's a gas leak not an ammo problem. I'll use some silicone gasket material tomorrow to provide a permanant solution.

evan:
You will find a very large cross-section of good advice at "SKSboards".

Many of these guys know their rifles intimately, and live the SKS 'lifestyle'.
They have a forum for Norinco, one for Russian, Yugo...

The 'veterans' have seen or heard about all of the problems.
