Alien Indy HPR Leak

So I went to go do my annual maintenance for the first time ever since I have gotten the 2011 Indy last year, and I wiped down, then lubed up the orings on the HRP and now I have just the slightest leak coming in through the velocity adjustment screw. Any idea on why that is? I am almost certain I put all of the washers back correctly, and I am pretty sure I put the bearing and the piston in correctly. The gun fires and everything, just have a tiny leak is all.

Take it apart again - check the oring on the velocity adjuster (from memory, there is usually a small one there) - may have nicked it - that's the cause of most leaks out of the velocity adjuster.

Just looked at the manual

"In the unlikely event air leaks out the setscrew hole in the base,
the adjuster can be removed and the two 010 O-Rings can be
replaced, by first removing the setscrew and then pushing up the
ball bearing and adjuster.
The adjuster is threaded inside to allow
the screw that holds the trigger frame and body together to be
screwed into the adjuster, so that the adjuster can be pulled out of
the base. Do not allow the ball bearing or the disk to fall out of the
base. However the adjuster and O-Rings move so little that
deterioration over its useful life is so minimal that servicing the
adjusting should be unnecessary. "

Just replace the one in the cap - take cap out - screw out the adjustment screw - push the piston out and lube or replace and lube the O'ring

Fixed the problem. Thanks! Just double checking here, there is no washer/shim that doesn't fit on the middle part correct? They should all fit on shaft part, with one on top?
