Default Turbo Plug Leaking

I have a buddy just bought a slightly used Orion Wasp .12 with the turbo head. When engine is running, you can see fuel leaking from around the plug. We tried a new plug, and we're afraid to tighten it any tighter. Has anyone had this before, or is it common on turbo heads? Thanks

It would most likely be that the button is warped but don't be frightend to tighten that plug up, but it creates a better seal when it gets warm.

Talking about Turbo Plug.....after every full day of run - after run oil next -there's my problem goes! I'm having a hard time removing it and have to use a different tool (w/ a longer arm for leverage). My question is ....how tight it should be?
