If the rebuild was as poor as you indicate, the rebuilder may have removed the needle valve seat and replaced the seat using the same gasket that was there originally. I have had that same experience and it turns out those gaskets are “one time use”. Putting the seat in with the used gasket can result in a very big leak around the needle valve similar to what you’re experiencing.
Experience is a wonderful teacher!
