      Get thee to a wrecking yard, or ebay, and get one from a older diesel rabbit, as they are metal, and will not be prone to leakage ever again.

      Mine had distorted, and got out of round due to age and heat.
      Grounds, Grounds, Grounds Replace them things.
      Divorces, Great Coffee, and Electrics, all start with GOOD Grounds.

      Where are my grounds ?
