Try replacing the valve o-rings with tank o-rings and when you secure the valve with the valve set screw do not overtighten it because it will end up pushing the valve to one side and squish the o-rings.

Also did you check to see if there was any nicks or imperfections on the valve face itself? Any imperfection on the valve face will cause a leak, the cupseal and valve has to have a perfectly clean surface to seal properly.

If you can't figure it out you can always use your marker warranty to have Kingman take care of it for you. Just send it in with a detailed note and your contact info when sending it in.
