1. Any way to fix a cracked manifold to tank ??


2 . Manifold cracked whilst tightening to tank LF10-4H. Is this an indication of an existing weakness or did I just tighten too much...

3. Sealant to be used : teflon tape, pipe dope ?????

Thanks

Fix? Doubtful.

If you can't find a new one, consider this:

As to sealant, I prefer pipe dope, but Teflon's fine. Just don't block any air passages with whatever you choose.
