three most likely places air can leak out the seal, the valve or the connections of the cross over tubes. A little soapy water should reveal the leak. Note if the seal is leaking oil maybe evident on the tubes too.

I keep a spray bottle (an old trigger-spray "mist" bottle that used to have cleaner of some sort in it) in the garage. It has a bit of dish soap in it, filled the rest of the way with water. Any time I'm looking for an air leak (pneumatic hoses, tires, valves, etc), I just spray it on the area in question, and look for the soap bubbles to form.
