Default can't get scuba fill to work

I bought a used scuba tank and a scuba fill station adapter off ebay, one of these to be exact http://cgi.ebay.com/SCUBA-FILL-STATI...QQcmdZViewItem, anyways it seems that it doesn't line up and leaks air from the bottom of the adapter. anyone know who to fix this?

make sure the blead valve is shut and the tank oring is good.

Some scubas are different. Mine requires a different shape adapter to prevent leakage.

it seems the knob on this particular tank wouldn't allow enough clearance for the fill adapter to be put on just perfect, it was millimeteres off and thus caused air leakage everytime. went back to the shop and they replaced valve with one that had a smaller knob on it, now the adapter fits perfect. thanks for the replies guys
