A dry valve cupseal is what's allowing the co2 to leak from the barrel. Disassemble it and lube the cupseal- that should fix it. If you can't find the cupseal Google Search for an assembly schematic- a standard Spyder schematic should do.
The leak from the bottle means your bottle o-ring is worn out and not sealing. Simply replace with a new one.
The feedneck is missing, eh? Was it held in place with 2 screws or are there threads in the body for it to screw in?
