    You may be able to tighten the large ram nut to compress the seal a bit more. You are headed toward having to replace the seal but it depends on quantity. If it is damp, then tighten the ram nut 1/4 to 1/2 turn. if it is leaking down the side, bite the bullet and replace the seal.
    You didn't say what kind of system you have so this is pretty generic. Hope it helps.:)
