    Mate, change the flexi pipe alone. I had mine go on my Vec-C and got a back street garage to cut out the old flexi and weld in a new flexi. Cheapest way and worked a treat! £50.00 all in all, and I supplied the flex.

    I bought one from a local motor factor's just up the road from me. Have an ask around up there, if you dont have not joy, let me know and we can sort out getting one sent uo to you?? All I needed to tell them was the bore size and the lenght of the flex. Let me know.

    Ebay do clamp on flexi pipes. I did mine months ago and I think it was less than £20.
