changed my mind typing is ok
Expert:  Rick replied 1 year ago.

The reason it leaks in the capped position is that the valve is defective. You always have pressure on the manifold so there's always pressure on the valve even if it's not connected to anything. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but if you can't locate a replacement valve you'll have to replace the entire manifold. There are no other options.
