HI all-

Just replaced the 2 orings and gasket for the starboard side pipe. It was leaking at the pipe/head joint. Now it leaks at the inner oring(near the thermostat). It seems seating the oring on the interface is not so easy. Any tricks?



Thanks in advance

Ken

A blob of grease holds the ring in place. Just make sure the ring didn't get cut by the sharp end of the pipe. :waving:

Thanks Eddie-

finally got the pipe back together, and no leaks! The new orings want to bind, but after 4 attempts, it's back together.

Ya gotta lube up the o-rings slightly and twist the pipe into the flange when reassembling. The lube keeps it from binding or bunching up.
