I just blew the hipac provided seal last night. I dont go over 2400 psi as i use a weaker spring. NEED something now. Would a leather one work?

I think you (me too) may be over tightening. I noticed that's how I blew my stock seal. The hipac was hissing and I thought it was from the valve seal so kept tightening the hipac (by hand) but then realized it was hissing from one of the joints of the extension. The stock seal was toast after that. Just finger tip snug is plenty I think.
I have ordered a few seals from hipac but am still waiting on them. Fairly cheap ($2.50 for 5) and you can order about 30 or so on $5 shipping charge.

Air is just blowing through. the valve isn't open i cock it on empty before I pump. seal is pooched. Gone. It is an ex Seal. Got her apart for an inspection in the next couple of days, so I will post a pic of the seal if i think of it. I'm wondering if the hipac is cutting them with a little burring on the valve connection seems a little rough.
