Save yourself the confusion and just add a tire liner, such as Mr Tuffy, to your tires.

You will be a lot more confused trying to get tubeless to be reliable on non tubeless compatible wheels.

Not familiar with Dalby forest, but 300-400 will not get you much, especially with the current covid 19 demand.

You may be able to test with just the old front tire. It would help isolate the cause and be faster than looking for answers here.
