FIXED THE FART!
i had pulled the valve, took out the spring ring whatever its clalled
put in a c clip instead
the c-clip sat on the face of the valve, not the shoulder, i turned the face back to clear the ring, bam fart is gone!
now to figure out how to powdercoat it this weekend (garage is torn down, and its monsooning outside)
