we did notice the release valve has 2 rear o rings and noticed in some manuals thier should be three

On both trim systems used on those engines there are three O rings. If you are missing one then the unit will not work. Check inside where the manual relief valve goes for a broken O ring. Let me know what you find and we'll go from there.
