I trying to install an Eclipse tubeless sytem on my Mavic 317's and am having air leak
issues between the rim and the tire , right by the valve .
It seals every where but there .
Can anyone who has installed this kit share some insight ?

Won't the sealant plug the hole? Check for a rough spot on the rim or a piece of crap wedged in between the rim and tire. My Eclipse install went pretty good.

There's no actual hole in the tire , it's just leaking between the rim and tire .
I will check to see how smooth their surfaces are .
With the valve stem , in what order are the washer and rubber washer installed ?
I have it inside the tire with the washer on the valve stem and the rubber washer
on top against the rim .

Did you have to drill out a bigger valve stem hole? The valve stem goes on, then the rubber washer seals the outside of the rim and the flat washer and nut goes last.
