Snapped nipple

Post by Thunderbolt » Fri 12 Jan, 2018 11:01 am

Hi I put new engine mounts in and accidentally disconnected a vacuum pipe and when I was checking it out I snapped the nipple on the one way valve on the brake booster line aaaarrr! So as a "temporary" fix I drilled the hole and put a little hose joiner for garden watering in there (see pic) it works a treat but the bore is slightly smaller than the original. I think I'll do the brass t piece trick that Tony from West Oz has done. Anyway I thought I'd put this up as it might help if someone needs a quick fix
