drain tube

Postby captbo » June 5th, 2017, 9:52 am

I have a Ok ie Joe's Highland I spent this weekend seasoning and applying door gaskets,, I notices along with the known leaks that the drain tube in the bottom right was showing a good bit of smoke, My question is What is the best way to close this off? Thanks

Like an open ended tube or a seam?

If it was a threaded pipe we put valves on them.

Try not to reduce the size of the opening so it doesn't get goo stuck in it.

Duct tape fixes everything, except stupid. It won't fix stupid, but it does muffle the sound. =))
