Hey I just bought a rebuilt control valve from VBP and after bleeding the air and running it for a bit it is wet around the lower bolt that connects the two parts of the housings together. Anyone else had this issue? Can I give it a little time to go away or should I pull it and send it back?
I rebuilt mine twice and it was leaking horribly, so I decided to purchase a rebuilt one, so needless to say I am not too psyched to pull the CV yet again.
Thanks for any help or advice.

Id wipe it down and keep a eye on it.If it leaks after a few days send it back.

you might want to be sure your return line as well as the rest of them are tight.
