I also have redone a cub or two. I have removed the remains of a broken pipe in the manifold by heating the pipe and getting it loose and collapsing it, Then cleaned the threads with a dremel tool and the dremel wirebrush. The first cub I did was before the internet was around to ask advice. Was not my intention to insult with the post for the new manifold. I inch pipe tap priced would be $20 dollars on ebay and up top $90 at other places. I did this with the manifold on the tractor. Then I removed the manifold the passages were close to being blocked by baked in oil. That is why if I had a place to buy a $95 dollar manifold that was clean inside and out I would have done it. But you know to each his on.

I replaced my manifold too but only because the pipe had been welded to it and it broke off again. I don't remember what I spent for the new manifold but it was worth it to me at the time. :beer:

I have the tap. He's bringing the manifold to Cecil's cubfest. We'll fix it, if it is fixable.

I don't think anyone is insulting any one by deciding whether or not to buy a new manifold....Don't worry about it....I simply believe if it can be fixed it will be.... Kinda like fixing a tire or buying a new one.. Maybe that will clear it up for you... :D

If the threads are beyond repair, you can go ahead and do a "last chance" repair.

Weld or braze a new BLACK pipe in. Don't use galvanized because welding on galvanized creates phosgene gas, which will mess you up as bad or worse than the isocyanides in paint hardener.
