Jack,
Take a look at mc master carr https://www.mcmaster.com/#sight-tubes/=1dy8i0k

It depends on whats leaking, but im going to make a guess that its the gasket around the tube? Mc master also has the tubes that is the issue.

Some more info on what exactly is leaking might
help.

I would take the tube out carefully so as to not hurt the existing gasket and try to match up a new gasket. Check the tube for nicks and cracks too. A quick look at mc master www.mcmaster.com showed both gaskets and glass tubes available assuming your sizes match.

Hope that helps, and let us know how it goes.
