Drain air, remove fill port, repair.

It has a check ball in it. It can be pretty fussy to get to seal up for sure.

I put a very small oring under the check ball in mine with some silicone oil and it sealed up

I don't have one with the check ball out and the one I have showing where it's at is to big of a file to post here. Trying to figure it out now lol.

Maybe go to the FB Origin group and I can post it there for you.

The check ball is really small so don't loose it if you take it apart.

A friend of mine in the Origin FB group had the same problem and was able the use the needle valve from a small engine carburetor. Some of them have a rubber tip on them. I think he changed the spring also but not sure.
