Default RE: Broken pipe...is it repairable?


ORIGINAL: CrashPro

While flying my Cermark F-18 today, the pipe just dropped off, and the engine died. I was able to make it back to the runway and land ok. After an hour or so of searching, was able to find the pipe. Don't understand how this happened, but one side of the pipe broke, and the screw threads on the other side are stripped out. Is this repairable?...or cheaper to just buy a new pipe? Thanks for any help.
Sometimes repairable....

My suggestion is to send it back to Dub. If he can use most of the other parts, it can be repaired. If not, then he can arrange for a replacement.
