It's cheaper in the long-run to buy a new one........  I got a used-one to
replace my cracked one and a couple of weeks later the replacement one
cracked and the loss of water light came-on in a traffic jamb in the city!
Subsequent attempts to repair with epoxy were unsuccessful.  BLAUfergnugen
occasionally have a sale price on the unit but the replacement ones have the
overflow nipple coming-off into the air-cleaner duct (maybe they sent me a
5000 unit by mistake), this was easily resolved by lifting the duct a little
and using a longer hose back to the radiator.

the lower nipple.  Is this something that can be expoxy or is it
replaceable??  Is it the same as the 5000?
