I finally recieved my tank. hooked it up and the shoe box was not putting out pressure.
pulled off the front and sprayed the upper cylinder is leaking around the air tube coming out. Where do I go from here

I tried to tighten the nut but it appears to be tight

Help from any one would be great

Is that the left end of the cylinder or the right? It was putting out at least the 85 psi shop pressure right?

It is the left side of the piston it is leaking aroung the tube where it comes out of the nut. I took the nut and tube off didnt see any thing wrong so I put it back together and tightened (yes I marked it like in the video and tightened it to the same place) It is still leaking now more than before. I purchased a rebuild kit but do not see a ferrel in the kit.

Let me know how to proceed.
