Viewloader Co2 leak How to fix?

Also when was the last time you ran oil through your ASA. Sounds like the valve isn't sitting right.

Did you know Hellen Keller had a Playground? No? Neither did she.

See where the steel line goes into the marker. Well there's a valve there.
You should be cocking the marker before putting the air on. - Always.
Put 4-6 drops of marker oil in the ASA and fire with the CO2 on about 12 times.
I would try this first.

However - If you did take the marker apart then I would say the front section is not assembled correct.
Cap > spring > retainer (ninja start thing) > poppet (plunger thingie)
If the retainer is not in the right order or sitting correctly then the poppet won't seal properly giving a leak similiar to this one.

There is an o-ring on that front cap. You can take out the cap and replace the o-ring. It tanks a standard tank o-ring. Just make sure all you do is remove the cap. Do not take anything out of there. Also make sure the marker has no air. That front cap holds part of the valve in place.
The o-ring there is on your tank. At least it should be. If not, your tank will not seal properly against the marker and you will have one big CO2 cloud at the back of your marker.
