Oh bugger again!!

Post by Mothman »

Took the TGS out yesterday for a hard thrash and this evening there is green blood everywhere. Look like the octopus has failed, at least i now have a spare. Probably to be expected for a 21 year old motor.
Malcolm, help!!

Hi Malcolm,
i can actually see the pipe and the split from where the blood is leaking from, its gone where the pipe is slightly bent. The pipe has some sort of clip with a pin thats holding it onto a pipe. I reccon it could be cut and reattached or just spliced with a bit of copper tube.

ok
if no one has bin in there before and added a clip to the oct pussy pipe at the H/C,

as it is normaly the other rubber pipe connection to the H/C that has a pipe clip ( miniature jubilee clip ) on from the factory,

and yes as you say is exactly what i do to fix this, very fiddly but do able with loads of PERCY WHAT SIT
