handyman do you mean 3 potential leaks points overall or 3 potential leak points for the original poster?
The original poster said his leak is at #3. look at his first post and look at #3 on his photo. If his leak is at #3, then his leak is coming out the male hose adaptor. Which means the white plastic seat is bad or not seated properly.
If the stem valve o-rings were bad, his leak would be coming out from under the handle.
If the o-ring at the top of the 1/2 MIP threaded stem was bad, the leak would be directly below this o-ring shown at point #5 in the first photo.
