Response to 1377c - Was Leaking Down, now it isn't(sort of), does this make sense?!?!?
Acetal is a hard seal material so it's not forgiving of eccentricity. Nothing's to say
that either the valve seat or seal are perfectly concentric. It's common practice to
apply some lapping paste and spin the seal on the seat (e.g. with drill).
To make your own lapping paste, scrape some of that 1200 grit off with a blade and mix
with cutting oil or other.
