Perhaps you can post a picture of the bottom with something pointing to the suspected leak spot?
I'm not picturing the leak location very well, but it sounds like the actual element to base junction is leaking.  Or worse perhaps the element itself is leaking?

Hello,
Apologies for the delay in returning to this thead.  It has been a long research to find good anti rust product in uk as naval jelly is not sold overe here and posphoric acid is not available in jelly suspension.  Lickily I found a great non toxit rust remover (Deox)  and brought back the inside of the base to almost new
After this I sprayed the inside with high zinc  content  paint.
It is grey and it  took 4 days to dry completely.
Fact is that this paint seems easy to remove and scratch and it doesn't repel water.  Should I finish with a protective paint?  I've some stove into rust painting in chrome.
Also I wander if the zinc paint will bear the temperature.
If this things works my Millennium won't see rust at least for the rest of my life.
Thanks.
Antonio
