Default Brand new P5XLT, bubbles and fuel around glow plug

Hi, looking for some advice please.

I have a brand new P5XLT (the older model, not a 2019). It was stupidly tight, but after heating to 200c and lots of attempts on the start box I finally managed to get it started.

Immediately I noticed that fuel and air are leaking around the glow plug. It came fitted with a Novarossi plug. I have tried another brand plug (I didn't have any spare Nova plugs) and it's still leaking. The plug is tight.

I haven't ran more than 1/3rd tank through it so far. Do I have a faulty head button?

That is a faulty head button. Make sure you use Nova glow plugs only though, CT06 are the common ones.

You can look if there is some dirt in the head button.
