King 2.0 x14” resivors leaking oil

Just noticed oil is slowing seeping out of the round cap seals of the resivor. The side where the line connects both resivor and shock. Can I just simply replace the seals on the cap? Or is there something else going on. Is this normal for them to leak from resivor?

There is an O-ring in there. It might be damaged.

How old is the shock? Has it been recently rebuilt? I have seen a number of shocks that kind of weep a little oil vapor that is left over from assembly. I would spray on my brake clean them wipe them down and see if more oil appears. Disregard if gushing.

my money is the N2 is all but gone, not energizing the seal, and allowing it to weep.

with the schrader pointed at the ground, let the N2 out and im sure the youll get the king mist/spray indicating an IFP failure.
