Hi Brian,
Mine leaked on air so I fitted a stiffer spring. This helped but still leaked slightly on air but it's fine when in steam once pressure is above about 20psi.

I wouldnt worry too much about the odd leak here and there, once its in steam it nearly always will be fine.

You'll also get the odd weep as its coming up but quite often they will stop once you've got some heat in it Cool

I was a little worried about weeps here and there but my boiler inspector said its a steam engine, show me one that doesnt Laughing
