    Hi fellas, I’ve taken the time out to repair my Ex93,
    A note of future reference
    The bail arm screws into the bale lug that intern screws onto the font threaded lug.
    This is where I went wrong checking for leaks in the first case.

    Repair
    I covered the whole tank in a wet towel to help limit the heat to other parts

    a bit of preparation, I know it looks messy but it is set and stable. I water tested it a few times it didn’t leak. Successful.
    I set about cleaning it up, looks better the lug is now permanently attached.
    I’m pleased with the outcome

    I can’t wait to get her going again
    Thanks fellas
