They are pretty simple to rebuild with the kit. A few minutes each valve. Il put my money on it not being seated properly.

I won't tell you how I know

AIRE - Leafield B7 Valve Rebuild - YouTube

B7 is basically the same as the A7 but Sellotape some strong thin thread to the screw thread at the same time as the tape on top so as not to lose the valve in the tube
