Unknow Internal Leak

Was at the field taking a break when I all of a sudden heard my Viking leaking. I took a tool kit to it to make sure pressure was fine and I noticed inside the marker some broken pieces of o-ring. I took out my hammer, SCM, and even the volumizer. None of the pieces had broken o-rings so I changed the old ones out. I checked the solenoid o-rings and nothing was wrong with them either.
To no avail I was not able to find the leak. It sounds like it is coming from the solenoid but when I dabbed a little AKA lube around the solenoid, no bubbles formed. I dare not pour the lube onto the solenoid. Anyone have any suggestions?

Perhaps something in the Sidewinder? However, most of those o-rings most very little, so I doubt it.

What about the scm? I had a tiny leak in my Viking, and when i sent it in to DC they said the piston for my scm needed to be replaced.

I do not think it is the sidewinder. I did the soapy water test there. SCM maybe. When I put my fingers or hand over the solenoid when handle is taken off, I can hear a difference. Could a small piece of a broken o-ring get in the solenoid?

Sure could. It has happened to others before. If you can, I would just send it to DC for a tune-up.

Yeah I filled out the form to DC to send it in. Looks like the leak is coming from the area where the small screw holds it in place. Maybe the intake hole from the sidewinder. Can't get more specific than that. Been talking to Jared through email about it. I was hoping I did not have to send in. I wonder how much a new solenoid is
