Question Help!! Need to replace my 'Noid insert?

Hey guys, I was hoping I could get some insight on my SFT's solenoid insert. The filter on the end of my left insert seems to have a crimple in it. I don't know if it is affecting my gun negatively or if it doesn't matter. I do have a pretty serious leak down the barrel right now, and I'm trying to fix that. I am going to order a full rebuild kit and replace every single oring on the gun until it seals up, but I didn't know if this insert ought to be replaced while I'm at it, instead of simply replacing the o-rings on the insert.

Here's some pics:









As seen in that last pic, the insert/filter does seem to be pretty darn close to being perfectly straight. The crimple on the filter is just what is troubling me.

I figured it isn't an issue, if I remember right the early SFT's didn't even have the filter on there. So I figure if mine's bent, it isn't exactly a big deal.

Screw the inserts back in to be flush with the bottom of the body, right?

Replaced those and im still leaking.

Also replaced the front bolt oring.

I don't have unlimited access to air so I'm kinda about to get screwed if I can't seal it up this next time around.

Those are the only 3 orings that would cause a barrel leak
other things to check.
1) check for scratches on the bolt and inside the oring glands.
2) make sure your bolt is going back upon air up. If it stays forward its gonna leak.
3) check the input pressure and make sure its high enough. If its to low it may not seal right and bleed out like when you shoot the tank dry and it bleeds out at the end.
