Ripper 2 Leak

My Ripper 2 is leaking from the regulator base from where I circled in the picture below.



How would I go about fixing this?

Check to see if there is a small washer on the threads of the barb that the hose connects to. The barb might also need to be tightened down, but don't go nuts on it because they will snap off.

Could also be the hose itself.

Ok I'll check that thanks.

It could be the barb or hose if its leaking from the outside?

Might be the o-rings on the actually front block itself.

Its definitely the orings. Apparently I don't have the right size orings so now its leaking worse. Simple fix though.

Thanks for all the help!
