RE: leaking tfv8
It's that top fill bud, it's not making a propper seal. I don't have one to hand to look at or I'd have an 'ideal' solution. Without seeing it.. I think the hinge is worn, it's only a fraction of a mm but that's all it takes. Here's some off the cuff ideas; 
You need to press the hinge pin, if you have access to a press or somthing similar.
You need to raise the top fill gasket with a thin plastic film cut to perfect size.
Put a really thin o ring *under the section of gasket around where the fill hole is.
Get another atty Tongue

RE: leaking tfv8
Have you confirmed that the coil is firmed screwed down? If the leaks are from the airholes, it's leaking from the bottom - I;m looking at mine right now - if you said from the sides I would suggest you change the O-rings on the bottom but sine it's from the airholes and you have a new coil in it, I can only think of the coil not being seated firmly - same juice as before of have you gone to some super thin mix?

I'm with gently on this one. If the top is not sealing properly the air getting in is forcing liquid out of any place easy for it to do so - the air vents.

RE: leaking tfv8

RE: leaking tfv8
Do you still have the receipt? If it's not anything you are doing and it's not the coil or orings it might be a machining error. I would go and exchange it if you can.

Oops, writing while you posted.
