Regulator leak. Photo

Behind the high pressure cylinder there is a nut and two holes. I'm leaking out of those holes. Any ideas?

Are there screws in the holes?

No screws. There is a tension screw under the nut though. Tried loosening and tightening it. Too loose does not allow co2 into the low pressure side and too tight makes it leak faster.

Torn Diaphragm

Hmm So I'm getting a bit frustrated. As it turns out my diaphragm appears weak/potentially cracked. I found some replacement diaphragms for other regulators, but nothing for this rarity. Could I possibly replace it with another make/model diaphragm? Is that a standard size?

If not, I've read a little bit about using different glues/silicone's for fixing the one I have. If possible I'd like to not have to buy another regulator right now. If I do, anybody have a good suggestion?
