    Does this 1st stage reg have a history of leaks at the swivel? Have 2 of them and they both have a small leak at swivel.
    Took apart and see that there isn't a defined groove for oring, maybe a large amout of cristal lube required?
    Any thoughts?

    I've never had one leak... were they repaired recently?

    If you service the first stage and full seat the thrust seal and tighten the diaphragm retainer cap it will solve the problem. How many dives are on it now, have you tried to tighten the diaphragm retainer with a #5 hook spanner?

    Are you talking about the low pressure turret?

    I have several D1s and have never had one leak from the turret. I will comment that the torque/attachment for the turret is inside behind the 5th port. So if you either under torque the turret retainer, or over-torque a plug or hose into the 5th port, you could cause a problem when you unscrew things.
