His signature claims it is a firebolt, which leads me to believe this might be a problem as well.

If everything seems to be in order then the bolt's internal o-ring may have been damaged during assembly. This o-ring can be found in the o-ring diagram here. The two pieces of the bolt are loctited together so a lot of torque will be required to separate without scratching the bolt surface. When reinstalling the pieces, apply loctite to the FEMALE THREADS ONLY then screw the tip onto the tail section.
