Cant find high pressure oil leak

Pull your IPR, it probably pushed the screen in and is stuck or sticking from debri. I've seen a few pushed in screens that caused intermittant no starts

When I lost my high pressure oil & had a no-start ... my snap-to-connect popped off.

Search the forum here & you'll find much about it ... somewhat common.

small under valve cover leaks are usually pretty hard to hear and since your not building hardly any ICP suspect a big leak that should be easy to see.

Also being intermittant makes me think IPR too. Are you commanding the IPR closed when you're air checking for leaks? You should hear a change in sound when opening and closing it, if not suspect it's sticking and not operating like it should

Yeah there are o-rings in there but it is extremely rare for there to be any failures in that area. It would be nearly impossible to pinpoint that too.

There is a kit on ebay to change those o-rings but I'd only do it as a last resort.
