inlet manifold repair

Postby simon.rob » Tue May 22, 2018 8:51 am

Hey! just seeing if anyone has repaired the brass pipe coming out of the thermostat housing part of an inlet manifold on an Essex v6. mine has corroded so much that the hose is too big and will no longer seal.

can this piece of pipe be withdrawn and replaced ?

any help / advice appreciated

thanks a lot
