Loosing my mind over a leaky alias Please HELP!!

Hey there, I'm going to try and be concise but I have a feeling this is to be a bit wordy. Please bear with me! The alias in the picture is not mine, its just the first picture of one I could find.

I have mis-placed my gopro, otherwise I would post a video since I think that would help.

Have an 05 alias with virtue board, otherwise stock.

put air to it the other day for the first time in many years and had a bad leak near the back of the gun.

bought a rebuild kit for it and replaced EVERY oring in/on/around/near/beside/under/next to/ and behind the gun.

the leaky ram/ram sleeve was fixed; but created the following:

New leaks:
down barrel
around the lpr (see picture below)
out of the lpr adjustment screw.

I broke down the lpr and replaced the orings in there and installed (hybrid?) lpr parts and internals

this fixed one of the lpr leaks (out the adjustment screw) but the threading for the lpr cap (see #2 below) still leaks.

I replaced the poppit oring again and made sure the poppit top hat and such parts were in good shape.

The gun is a few years old but didn't see much field time when it was new. shortly after buying it (new, I'm the original owner) It hit the gearbag for a 5 year hiatus.

I have watched countless videos and read numerous threads regarding similar issues and short of buying a whole new poppit and lpr setup I have exhausted my know-how, tools, spare parts and energy.

Please respond with any suggestions you may have. I'm lost.

THANKS!!

are you using dow 55 on the orings? not saying it will fix everything but may help, especially the one on the back of the LPR. as for the cupseal, what is your HPR putting out? and did you replace the orings on the ram sleeve? again, dow 55 on all the orings, let it sit over night.

That's what I keep hearing. I hope the 55 comes in soon. I'm itching to get the alias back on the field!
