Same thing happened to me yesterday. Filled the tank (unfortunately in trusting the guy knew what he was doing the meter read he put in 3.1 gal -- which in my readings those tanks are 3.0gal tanks and should only be filled to 80%, which would be 2.4gal.) Upon closing the Bleeder Valve it continued escaping out of this little mystery hole, plus a 'vent' (?) or 'back-pressure' vent off the 'on/off' knob and emptied the tank. Getting it looked at and fixed today.
How has the rebuild been holding up? Any other problems? I need to have my refill valve replaced/rebuilt, and am considering Kamps.
