Murphy's Law and Leaky Eheim / Help

I hope someone here has a tip that they can offer. I cleaned my 
lovely algae tank and started over with flourite and plants. I moved 
my eheim 2026 to that tank, got it all set up and it leaks. Some 
months ago I had this problem and it turned out to be something 
minor. I can't recall now what the problem was and I'm getting 
nowhere in trying to stop the leak. I've taken everything apart, 
including the head, cleaned and lubed all the O-rings with vaseline. 
Nothing works. It's leaking from inside the head (where the 
electrical cord comes out) and eventually spilling over. I'm out of 
ideas. If you have any ideas, please let me know. This filter was 
working fine a few weeks ago when I took it off my 55, so I'm stumped.

That's what I get for specializing in algae, I guess.
