I figured out the leak is at the fill hole of the tube. I believe it's the poppet valve that wont seat properly.
So far I removed the pressure gauge cap and found that the gauge seems to be removable too with a wrench. Is it going to separate from the tube allowing access to the poppet?

Max use a close fitting rod and remove the fill fitting
Inside is like the valve body spring retainer
Check valve uses an oring IIRC

...A rod through the fill port hole, like a tap handle...

Thank you Walter, I knew you'd have the answer. :wink:

Max, they are in there quite tight so make sure you have a good grip on the tube with protection. The tube is aluminum and may scratch easy

Good luck eh!

I found a 3/8" rod at the shop,
turned it down until it fit, while the rod was still on the lathe,
I gave the tube a light twist and it came off easy.
There was a tiny speck of dirt on the o-ring. I ordered new ones.
In the mean time, I re-filled it and there are no more bubbles coming out.

Thanks again Walter, with your advice, it turned out to be an easy job.

Max.
