Battery tube failure



I am facing a problem with one of the battery tubes.
The multimeter gives a reading in the range of millimeters when measuring the spring side of the battery tube while i am getting a 10 volts outpot when measuring through the DB 25 connector so i am assuming that the spring in faulty. I think that a little amount of epoxy fell on the spring and caused this problem but I’m not 100% sure.

What can cause such a failure in the battery tube?


I’m curious about this, too. I think I may have a very small leak in my starboard battery tube. I had thought about adding epoxy to the back of the tube - just covering the metal plate and a little bit of the spring - to solve that, but now I think that may not be such a good idea.
