    Ideal isar he30 still leaking

    Cheers yeah think I'll manage, there's good deals on whole assembly Inc head etc so probably easier to do whole thing, would I need to remove the 2 stub pipes (hw out and ch flow) or could they be left in situ and just remove the 3 pins and guide the whole thing out?

    Yes this is what I thought but couldn't see one and really looks like it's coming directly from that seal between manifold and plate...anyway replacing the whole diverter assembly isn't too bad a job is it?

    I changed seals again for ideal branded ones, but exact same dripping from the manifold/heat exchanger joint...if I over tighten then the drip turns to a spray and a drip. Is it possible the manifold has warped or distorted over time and just won't make a solid seal anymore?? Worth replacing the...
