Have you tried to zero out your reg then slowly creep up?

Leaks internally is a vague description. With that description it could be an LPR oring gone bad, a solenoid hose came off, solenoid itself blew, etc... Where abouts is the leak coming from?

Hose is on tight like I said I've already taken it apart. O rings are fine as well. It sounds like right around the middle inside of the frame.

Does your solenoid have visible screw damage (two little circles ground into the solenoid body due to grip screws being overtightened)? If so your solenoid is probably blown.
