    Where it be leaking from? Did you get the knobs tight? Did you make sure there wasn't 2 gaskets on one of the posts? Are both the hold down clips on and tight? Claps on the mount tight? Just some simple things to check first!

    Where is it leaking exactly? Have you tried taking the filter off and making sure its all correct? Did you close the valves tightly after you bled the lines?
