I'd pull the main seal and give it a silly oil bath to rehydrate it.
there's also the possibility that one of the valves has failed. where exactly does the gas leak out of?
it leaks out from the top of the mag. i dont think it leaks from the valve. i can see the cloud of gas pushing out from the top but not from the side. is it possible to repair? could it be done with a new part?
